10 reasons you SHOULD get a chicken


  1. No matter how bad times get, you will always have eggs to eat.
  2. You don't NEED a rooster for eggs, you only need a rooster for fertilized eggs. If you don't understand this concept, let me tell you a little story about some birds and some bees.
  3. You'll never have scraps that you have to toss out again. Moldy cabbage just doesn't happen.
  4. Chicken poop makes great compost. So I hear, it's composting as we speak.
  5. I LOVE to hear "Cockadoodle dooooooooo" in the mornings.
  6. Seeing a chicken run is hilarious.
  7. I feel like the Pied Piper of Hamelin when I take anything outside the way they follow me around.
  8. Fuzzy baby chicks are possibly the cutest thing ever.
  9. Hearing that *CLUCKcluckcluckcluck* when a rooster gets spooked or annoyed at you.
  10. Hours upon hours of entertainment watching the heirarchy of chickens. No, it's really more amusing then it sounds.

Of course bonus #11 - Fluffy chicken butts are cute!

I have to agree especially with seeing a chicken run is hilarious and feeling like the Pied Piper anytime you bring them something or they think you have something they want. And now I REALLY want to get chickens again!
