Thought of the Day [Jul. 3rd, 2018|09:24 am]
I know it's not the right time in my life for chickens. They require more commitment than I can give. They're smelly and need lots of protection and our neighborhood *technically* forbids them.

But I cannot totally quash my desire—to someday own tiny dinosaurs who will poop breakfast for me.

I used to feel the same way. Now I kind of wish I could have part ownership in a "chicken-share" (like a timeshare) where I only have to take care of the chickens for a part of the year that works with my schedule.

I've heard chickens live for years beyond their productive time. I don't want to take care of non-productive chickens but I know I could never slaughter them after years of being essentially a pet.

Ooh, I like that idea. We have community gardens, why not community chicken coops?

I'd like to think that I could slaughter a chicken if I had to, but when the time came, I'd probably... well, chicken out.
