My name is Dawn Collyott and we invite you to join us on our venture to healthier living. We live in rural mid-missouri where we have a variety of animals, homeschool and have fun living life - you can find more on those topics at our blog www.collyottfarms.blogspot.com I am the mother of 3 wonderful children, home to many crazy animals. We grow a lot of our own foods, eat local and fresh as much as we possibily can. On this blog we will share our weight loss venture, recipes, neat finds and we love to Cheerlead so share your goals, sucesses and failures with us. We'd love to meet you.
OK I will admit it I LOVE chickens. I love their funny antics, the roosters crow and strut (he is the MAN!) and that little cackle they do when they've laid an egg (job well done!). My family tries to steer me clear of farm and home stores during "chick days" because I always have to adopt something - I'm a sucker!!
Besides the fun chickens can be there is nothing quite like fresh chicken (fried, boiled, baked) that you know you raised yourself free range and nothing beats a farm fresh egg - even the color of the yolk is vibrant and bright like the sun - it just looks healthy!!
I invite you to consider raising a few chickens - - a lot of urban cities are now allowing people to raise their own chickens. There is usually a limit (around 6) and you cannot have a rooster. FYI - you do not need a rooster for chickens to lay eggs. Go Green - Go Healthy - Get Chickens!!!
Above is a picture of my youngest "Colten" he is the CHICKEN MAN. I get into a lot of trouble if I have collected eggs - when he gets off the school bus the first place he heads is the chicken coop - then he finds a spot and sits to sing and/or talk to them awhile.
