Okay, this is the world’s shortest blog post; I just had to divulge my nerdity with someone so that I might feel less alone in this forever-fascinating world. Do any of you just get curious? I mean, to the point of spending 2 hours online searching out the answer for your own mental satiation? I actually do this all of the time. And it feels good to confess it.
Tonight, a kid picked a library book from the bag that started my downward spiral: it was A Chicken Followed Me Home! by Robin Page. It was basic chicken care for children, but it contained a factoid or two that got me thinking: how many eggs, how much meat do we consume? I kept digging (mostly on sites like the USDA and the National Chicken Council) until I found enough answers to call it a night. And since you are still reading this, you’re a nerd, too.
Thank you for that. I feel less alone already.
Interested in some great homesteading resources about raising chickens? Glad you asked…
