That's so great to hear! My mother has a lot of land that her house sits on and the kids keep bugging her to let them have chickens there....so she is icon_smile.gif So this spring all the kids are required to go to her house and clear the land and help build the coop in preparation for chickens! Her BF grew up on a chicken farm so we are looking to him for all the ins and outs of being chicken owners! I love all of your names! So fun!


that is so great! you guys will love them! get them young and raise them by hand and they will be the friendliest pets you ever had! we got our first chicks at a fair one year and we have been hooked ever since! they are truely wonderful pets! icon_biggrin.gif



I can't wait, I'm just as excited about it as the kids! Everyone is allowed to get their own chicken so I'm sure this will be a fun adventure and I hope the kids learn a little along the way as well....Goats are on the short list as well, but that's my mothers wish list, she saw miniature goats when she was on a trip and now she has to have them - she should have bought a farm at the rate we're going!! LOL I don't think she'll allow them in the house though icon_smile.gif

Haha our chickens only come in when they are young that way they can get used to people and be very friendly. I would love some goats! My sisters really want sheep. But we also have tons of dogs and cats and a few other pets so we just can't afford them right now.

When I used to work we had geese that would peck at the door for us to come out and give them corn. Eventually they had ducks, geese, chipmunks and a rabbit. One day it was literally duck,duck, goose!! But it was too funny when they would knock at the door! Oh, and a mallard decided that she was going to take the empty office!!

I think its time for a name change...given that Patty is a pet and you don't want to make her dinner...then you can call her

PATTY CAKE!!!
Cake = sweet indulgence
Cakes by Chris = indulgence with attitude!

My granddaughter has chickens for pets and they are so funny. She holds them like a football and can even take their feet and hold them upside down. The amazing thing is they don't get nervous and flap their wings, they just hang upside down. She can call them and whichever one she calls will run to her and wait for her to pick it up. They do have a rooster and they said it sounded as though it was going through puberty as when he tries to crow his voice cracks, they call him Little Man.

This is my favorite part of the whole story. When my kids were teens neither one of them pecked at the front door when they were ready to go to bed.m That's priceless!

You should never hang a chicken upside down! Never never! That could break a bone in their delicate bodies.

Also, chickens can be great pets, I have had them for 5 years, but they are a stinky messy animal and should not be in your home, especially near food.

Putting a chicken upside down is how you make them throw up.. One of mine once had sour crop and I had to do it several times a day until she was better.. The poor dear.

I have to say that I'm kind of surprised that this is the only comment that's been posted referring to how gross the idea of a chicken landing on a cake is. I love animals probably more than the average person, but that's nasty.

I hope the cake was tossed. Nothing like chicken poop and yard dirt... ewww! But you're in So Cal, California so it's its a cake for family anyway right.

Aside from my health code concerns, I find it highly disturbing that so many people who EAT chickens, (or pigs or whatever...) keep them as pets. There is a quote I love:
"Why do you call some animals pets, and other animals dinner?"

I really don't understand why people won't just eat (fresh) roadkill? Isn't it just meat? I know squirrels are very high in cholesterol, and all...and deer meat has the strong tang of urine, but I'm sure there are easy pickins' along most heavily driven highways. I'm just stating the obvious. icon_smile.gif


edited to add: distuging isn't a word...it's disturbing, so I fixed it!

1st point: most people who have chickens, pigs, cows, goats..etc as pets usually do not EAT, said pets. It would be the same as saying that you find it disturbing that people who raise horses still use glue.
2nd point: when cooked the right way, squirrels can be very good. I've never in my 25 years ever eaten deer meat that tasted of urine.
there is no reason to go on about how some people eat when it's just a matter of opinion...not really sure how you got from "hahaha! my chicken landed on my cake! isn't it soooo funny!!!" to "go eat roadkill" is completely beyond me...
