Hi, and welcome to my big backyard. It’s full of my kids and their friends, and chickens and dogs and cats and goats, and…oh, yeah: me!
I got interested in raising chickens quite a while ago when I moved from the city into the country. As soon as I started, I knew I’d found my passion. I was absolutely smitten with these beautiful, living lawn ornaments called chickens. It quickly became so much more than a hobby, for myself and my whole family. Now it’s our way of life. And with the launch of my business, Royal Roost, I just made it official.
I’m surprised by how many people think chickens are difficult to keep, not intelligent, dirty…you name it. These are all fallacies, and the purpose of this blog is to dispel the myths and rumors about raising and living with backyard chickens, and replace them with facts and observations made from real life.
Thanks for joining me here, and I hope you’ll be back often, to share this beautiful clucking life my family has made for ourselves here in our little corner of the world. I’ll post something new on an irregular basis, when something important or funny or interesting occurs to me and I have time to share it with you.
In the meantime, cruise around the rest of the site and if you have any questions, please let me know. I’ll do my best to answer them accurately and as promptly as I can.
