The Answer to the Current Salmonella Outbreak in Eggs

Everyone needs a few of these. 




Number One, aren't they gorgeous?

Number Two, they start off as adorable chicks that fit in the palms of your (or your kids') hands.

Number Three, they make you breakfast, and what other kind of pet can make such a claim?


FYI, my blogger friend Stefani Austin from Blue Yonder wrote an article in the latest issue of Urban Farm magazine that quotes yours truly on the joys of raising chickens with your family. Wow wow wow. I'm so famous. Look for it at your local bookstore.

And they're really not that hard to take care of. Future Diller family houses will always be in neighborhoods that accept chickens.

My local organic eggs gave me zero pause when I heard about the outbreak. Just totally didn't bat an eye.....love it!

Wow, that second one really is beautiful! What's her name?

She's a Gold-laced Wyandotte, and the kids call her "Twilight." (They know nothing of the vampire novels, she's named for her colors.)
