news in the news

We received our little township newspaper yesterday and in it is an article on chickens. It seems that Salt Lake City Unincorporated has received requests from folks to be allowed to raise poultry, in the name of Sustainable Living.
How cool is that???
The county mayor's office replied that they "Support strategies that encourage sustainable living..." and that they've provided propositional drafts to the community councils.

Eric and I have been talking the last few weeks about chickens again.
Last year we decided against it, but this year his interest in living off the land (small area such as it is) has tenfolded.
I think chickens (for eggs) are definitely in our future.

cluck cluck.

How great! Let's hope you (and the rest of the township, if they wish to) can go for it.

How near in the future is this? Like, next time I come down that way I bring you a few chickens? Cluck cluck!

Though I'm thinking that you probably want to raise them from chicks, don't you?

Oooh, my friend has chickens behind their home secretly and they LOVE it. I am jealous, but not sure how to do it cheaply w/ a dog.

Oh, having chickens is so fun! But I'll warn you, there's some extra cleaning involved. ;)
