Visiting My Chickens

Here at my farm in Bedford, New York, I always enjoy bringing visitors down to see my chickens.

I’ve long enjoyed the pastime of raising chickens. I began raising chickens primarily for their eggs, but over the years, I’ve also grown fond of caring for them, and learning about their many different breeds and varieties. I have four coops that house more than 100-chickens. Most of them come from Traci Torres, the founder of My Pet Chicken. From the moment they arrive, I make sure they are housed properly, fed all the best, most nutritious foods, and have enough room to roam and range happily. I am pleased to report, all my chickens are doing very well - and are enjoying these winter months fertilizing the vegetable gardens adjacent to their yard.

Here are some recent photos of my flock. And, happy Chinese New Year! On the Chinese calendar, 2017 is the Year of the Rooster.
