I like that you’re called a “chicken farmer.” XD

REALLY cool! I’m so excited for you and happy that the “mainstream” is recognizing urban chickens. The news clip was very positive.

LOL! I hope it wasn’t the smelly kind of poop that they do every once in a while! I always aim their buttocks away from my body!

Oh damn, I’m laughing so hard I have tears. What a dumb city slicker.

Yay! WTG!

Congratulations on the tv news report of how you are raising chicks and kids that are special…just like you. Thanks for helping Bec with her new challenge. Love you. Bring the kids to SC and we will show them turkeys and deer.

AHHH HAHA! What a riot! You guys looked great. Poop and all.

It’s nice to see backyard chickens shown in such a positive way instead of being controversial. That was great! :)

Loved this…I would Love to have chickens for my neighbors! And you too!

Brilliant! You look mahvelous!

Do you have to put the chickens in a pen at night to protect them? We have hawks even during the daytime and I’m afraid they would be attacked. Is that a problem for you?

Ahhh, that was awesome!! I am so jealous! We had 4 of our own backyard beauties for 2 yrs. I just gave them away a few months ago. We are moving to a rental. :( no chickens in a rental. Oh, well keep up the good work of spreading backyard chicken joy!

Love it. I live in a small town in the Fl Panhandle that does not allow chickens, rabbits etc…
I guess I have an uphill climb ahead of me as I want to bring a change about in the ordinance.

Thank you, everyone! And we don’t have trouble with hawk in my neighborhood. I don’t have to lock up the chickens at all, but I wonder if it’s because they live with the goats. From the sky they probably look like dogs.

That was awesome! Congrats on you and your kids looking wonderful and sounding intelligent… I know that sounds bad, but sometimes people don’t come off very well in these reports… but y’all did an outstanding job… not only for yourselves, but for us potential future chicken farmers. Thanks for sharing!!

It seems funny that what is, to us, such a normal and unremarkable thing, would make it onto a news report. Just goes to show how far removed much of society is from our food sources.

Kristi February 6, 2012 at 4:01 pm

Oh, that’s cute. Poop and all. :)

JavaLady February 6, 2012 at 10:33 pm

Congrats on being the neighborhood Star !! You and the kids looked fantastic !! And the chickens, well, they were just ”doing” what they do naturally.

Ashley February 9, 2012 at 11:54 am

That was great! I love the reporter didn’t appear to freak out too much when she pooped on him! So cool to see this on the news, and see the word spread for raising your own chickens!

Rhonda June 29, 2012 at 6:49 am

Poor Ben – hahaha! I wish I would have seen this earlier. Great Report!
