These were friends I haven't seen in a year or so, and when they asked what I've been up to, I of course talked about Sophia and ZsuZsu and this Urban Chickens blog.
Our conversations immediately went back to their childhoods and their experiences growing up with chickens in the backyard and how delightful it is to eat fresh eggs all the time.
Is this a phenomenon where the vast majority of us have chicken farming in our background but no context in which it can come up in regular conversation?
I'm almost tempted to start a Chicken Farmers group on FaceBook just to see how many chickens are in my social graph.
If and when I create the group (maybe over Thanksgiving?), I'll post the link here.
