Your chickens will lay the richest, yellowest, happiest eggs (yes happiest) you’ve ever tasted, and if you run out, buying eggs will be like selling your soul.
2. You’ll never get a sleep in again.
I love lazy, weekend lie-in. But once we got chickens we always had to get up on time to feed them. And if you don’t, they make sure you know it (they’re loud)!
3. You’ll never be able to make a compost pile.
We barely create enough scraps for our chickens, let alone a compost heap. We’re also very lucky that my parents collect their scraps for our girls too.
4. Say good-bye to your grass.
We have a fenced off area in our backyard that it now completely dirt. They’ve dug up every millimeter of grass that was there. We’re now fencing off areas in their fenced off pen to put down grass seed for them to eat.
5. The expense and experiments
Really, I love our chickens and I wouldn’t have it any other way. In fact, we’re hoping to get a few more.
