10 reasons to keep chickens

6 quarts of delicious, 24-hour-simmered stock from our pasture-raised meat birds, and 4 lovely eggs. And oh, there were another 2 quarts of stock in last night’s Tom Kha Gai (Thai coconut soup) too.

(The redheads I bought a month ago have finally started laying! Yippee! See that pretty little dark brown egg in front?)

    Does this mean you killed a few chickens?

    Yup! We butchered our 10 meat birds in late April. I haven’t written about it yet because it was a mixed experience for me and I’m not sure I’ll be doing it again… but eventually I will post on it.
