Chicken Therapy

Ever have that feeling that your life is just missing something.  And fill as you might, nothing seems to satisfy that tiny nagging in your heart.  A loving husband, three sweet kiddos, family, faith, friends, a creative small business, oodles of volunteer work, and enough projects to keep me under contract until 2025, and still...it’s not quite enough. 

My latest episode of these feelings came on strong in September after my littlest guy started kindergarten.  Empty nest syndrome?  Maybe.  Whatever it was, my usual remedies to quell the nagging had not been working.  And then the other day, I had a moment.  One of those crazy lady, break-from-reality moments.  It was a Kathy Bates “Fried Green Tomatoes” Towanda! moment.  The result...I am now the proud new mama of baby chicks.

Chicken therapy is the new dog therapy - at least that’s what I’m hoping. Maybe I was just feeling “broody” but I am pretty sure these little sweet loves will be the cure for my latest longings.  If not, then I’ve got even bigger problems that require more than just a chicken coop.  I hope you’ll continue to join me in my newest adventures in chicken keeping.
