Chickens are curious creatures.
When I was a child, my paternal grandmother kept chickens.
They scared the wits out of me because they always came nipping at my ankles.
My daughter would love to raise chickens in the countryside.
That is one dream I hope comes true because fresh eggs are the best.
There's no comparing fresh eggs to those bought in the super.
Fresh ones are a deep, almost orange color, not sickly pale yellow.
Fresh ones taste better, too.
Check out this "fluffy" chicken below.
To tell you the truth, I never saw one like it in my life until I spotted this one!
All the photos of chickens on this post were taken at a 4-H County Youth Fair in Western Massachusetts this month.
DO YOU HAVE ANY CHICKEN STORIES?
