Chickens filled my empty nest with something to take care of after our children were grown and gone.

|The mirror is real, The hearts were added in Picnik|
|Here is the "ugly duckling" before.|
|Here it is after some fixing up and decorating.|
|My third attempt at curtains was a success|
--the main by-product of my new hobby.
Is another by-product
Is yet another.
And good, fresh, healthy food is yet another...
Another by-product: I recycle what the hens don't eat into compost. They contribute droppings. I use the kitchen scraps, dryer lint, coffee grounds, grass clippings and eggshells to make great dirt! and the dirt makes great flowers.
FRIENDS are a by-product of chickens. I have met some new friends on Facebook who share my crazy chicken love. Many of them frequent the Fresh Eggs Daily page. (https://www.facebook.com/FreshEggsDaily)
FED is where I submitted this photo that won a 2012 calendar for our wall!
