That same day I got an email saying that the farm at our fairgrounds was offering a class on Raising Chickens in an Urban Environment. It was free. I took it as a sign that we were supposed to go.
It didn't sound that hard. It actually sounded like a lot of fun. I took a lot of notes, and then read everything I could about chickens online. Then I bought 3 books on chickens...
...Mims HAD been wanting a pet...
So now we've got 4 chickens in a rubbermaid tub in our kitchen. They're almost big enough to live outside, but I'm going to give them a few more weeks because it's cold and I don't want to put them out too early. Mims is happy! I'm happy! Jake is maybe less happy, since he's the one that cleans the tub... I keep telling him it will all be worth it when we have amazing fresh eggs.

Oh! And than you to everyone who downloaded my books last week. I ended up giving away over 13,000 books to people in 11 different countries!! How amazing is that?! Thanks for spreading the word and the love, Dynamos!!
