Buying the Caged Free Eggs 2

It is nice to know that my friends are so forward thinking and cool! I am planning on watching Food, Inc. tonight and recommend it to all my readers.  I will blog about what I learned and what I think.  I checked and it is available to watch instantly on if you have a subscription.  Maybe we should have a date night?  Lets all watch Food, Inc. tonight.

Lauren, I love that you have chickens in your yard. My old neighbors in Sugarhouse have chickens and my dear friend has chickens too. I saw this post on Sunset Magazine that made me think of everyone in Salt Lake City, Utah. If you don't get Sunset Magazine and you live in the West you are really missing out. I highly recommend it. I love this magazine. It has such great stories of cool earthy things to do, gardens, recipes, places to visit, etc.

Here is the chicken article.

Fresh eggs from your SLC backyard

One word: chickens. A new Salt Lake County law means you can now keep hens in your yard. Get a jump-start on spring with an intro class at the University of Utah. This month’s Coops de Ville: How to Raise Backyard Chickens gives you the 101 on which breeds to choose, how to care for fuzzy little chicks, and how to keep them safe in the suburbs. Mar 2 and 9 or Mar 3 and 10; $51;

How cool is that?  Charlie and Jack would probably eat my chickens, but I like the idea.  Go buy a chicken and have fresh eggs.

Have a great weekend.  Tomorrow is mine and Paul's 6th Wedding Anniversary.  It is so weird to think about.  We are planning on playing all day in Washington DC and then going to a play or music concert or something or other.

Congrats on 6 years! We have a couple of friends that are now proud owners of chickens. Our hens come with the added bonus of pest control. They eat every bug in sight, they are also little garbage disposals. We keep a bowl in our kitchen sink that we fill with left over fruits and vegetables, and they devour it!
