farm signI love my chickens! I think that is a sentiment most farmers and homesteaders have. I've had chickens all of my life, and they have always been a source of great pleasure and entertainment to me.

When I was small, I remember playing in the back yard making mud pies or building cities with small stones. The chickens were always there, scratching, clucking, and coming over to observe and critique.

Chickens are friendly creatures and curious by nature. They actually make very good companions.

We've had several roosters over the years of various breeds. My favorite seems to be the one we have now. He's a short, stocky little guy I call Prince Albert.

I named him after Daddy's favorite tobacco. I'm not sure what breed he is, as I usually buy chicks for their appearance rather than specific breeding. But Albert is a real treasure.
