Day 25: Some Chicken Love.

I have been neglecting the beauty of my feathered friends ... so thought I would dedicate a post to a few chicken photos. Enjoy!

Love,

Jodi

just wondering, I know this will sound strange, but do you eat them? I gave up meat several months ago, and always wonder who eats meat vs. those who don't. I am the only person in my family who doesn't eat meat, therefore I don't think ill of anyone who does, it for me is just a personal thing, I got ahold of an awful book!!!

Hi Sarah,

Funny you should ask. I was a vegetarian from the time I was 18 until about 5 months ago. Then I started eating some of our own home-raised chicken, some moose meat and some grass fed beef from a local farmer. I am sure I have read all the books you have on the subject, and I can TOTALLY see what you have gone vegetarian. I will not allow Isaac to eat anything unless his Daddy killed it, or this farmer that I trust.

But, we do not eat our pet chickens ... and we have 21 pet chix right now. 19 hens, 2 roosters. They almost all have names, and two of them will sit on your lap to be patted.

Anyway, I think vegetarian is a wonderful choice...especially given all that I have studied on Mad Cow disease and other ailments. Good for you that you have made the switch.

Love,
Jodi

Love that close-up of the feathers. Great shot! Nothing like having farm fresh eggs. Are you going to be able to take your brood with you?

Wow Jodi, That is really interesting! I want to see a chicken being petted!! My grandparents had chickens, but they would either run from you or run toward you, never sit still!
