  2. Aww…my dream! Thanks for the links! Anyone want to trade meat pigeons for chickens? The require no heating, no brooders, no particularly special anything, really. So why do I wish I had chickens and all their extra work? Because I like them, and I like the idea of them pottering about in my yard and giving me a few eggs. Silly romanticism, I guess…

      I don’t know your situation, but, I know several people that keep 2-3 hens in their garage and basements. A hen only needs 2 to 3 square feet of cage space. One of those larger pet cages or a large rabbit cage works well, they have a removable bottom tray for easy cleaning. 2 hens will lay 10-11 eggs a week, hens unlike roosters are quite and gentle. You do not need a rooster to produce eggs. Chickens need 14-16 hours of cage lighting.
      Anyway just a thought.
      Happy summer gardening

  7. My husband wishes we could have chickens in our urban backyard. I bet we could figure out how if we really tries, but since I’m allergic to eggs (and REALLY REALLY miss omelets) I told him that I won’t be tortured with yummy temptations that I can’t eat!

    If I were to raise chickens, however, I wold definitely make a bright pink coop! I read about a mobile DIY coop in John Seymour’s book The Self-Sufficient Gardener. Sounded pretty cool to me

      Grin, don’t think of chickens as ‘egg’ producers.
      Think of them as all natural insect pest control devices….
