Every morning I sit outside and drink my coffee with my feathered friends. I never knew how wonderful chickens were until my daughter got some. I was pleasantly surprised how engaging and friendly they were. So of course I had to have some for myself! The girls photographed here are a few of the bunch. I have 9 total at the moment. They bring me much joy and have taught me many lessons in life. Chickens around the world are treated horribly. They are exploited for their eggs and bodies in the most inhumane way conceivable. I don't eat their flesh or eggs. I urge you to do the same!
