friend's chickens

some friends of ours invited us to come and meet their chickens.  i have been trying, for awhile now, to talk luc into getting a few of our own and he hasn't been very keen on the idea.  but, i think it helped to see and hear what they have done to successfully enjoy raising theirs.  i only want 3 or 4 ... they have around 12.  it was fun to visit and watch the bird and the chickens check each other out and we learned quite a bit too.  i think it is safe to say that i can start doing a little research on my own now!
