Chickens: Incremental Farmer and Country Life

Standard

“Hens are not known for their kind eyes.” – Quote from a wise colleague.

Good to know: This is not a piece of corporate branding.

I have a new colleague who is definitely her own person – and fantastic. She tried to convince me recently that I need to start raising chickens at my house in the countryside in Värmland. I have the space for it, not quite the time, but that was not a good enough reason to say no, according to my colleague. She has chickens and said it is not difficult to care for them. She brought me what she refers to as her “chicken bible” (and it is pretty comprehensive), which tells one everything s/he needs to know about parenting chickens.

She followed up by telling me that her friend has a few chicks who will, in a few weeks, be ready to take home. Dear heavens – I think I am just not ready.
