Now you might ask why a vegan gal like me keeps chickens and their natural by-product, eggs. The only answer I can give you is that it is part therapy and part magic to me. Not to mention unconditional love. All I have to do is feed them regularly and when “my girls” see me, they come running like I’m their long lost rooster!

And the magic part is all of the little gifts they leave me just because I put clean hay in their nesting boxes. Imagine that! Plus, I love to give the free-range, hormone and antibiotic-free eggs to my appreciative friends. I hear that they are delicious!
