Everywhere I look, someone is writing or blogging about keeping chickens; apparently, raising the little fluffballs in not just for the farm anymore. Chicken coops are cropping up on city dweller’s little patches of land as urbanites, old hats at shopping at farmers’ markets, try to take it one step further and get in on the raise-your-own-food movement. The idea of fresh eggs is attractive (how pretty are those blue ones?), but for a single gal, one chicken would do me. For those of you thinking of getting a hen house, this company makes funky habitats for chickens; they’re like airstream trailers for chicks. And they’re almost as cute as the chicks themselves—before they grow up and into their feathers and start flapping and clucking.
