The Year of the Chicken
In order to enter our household, said chickens had to pass customs, or at least one custom, of parents saying no repeatedly to a 12 year old's seemingly impractical requests. But pass they did, as very cute chicks, which quickly grew through the summer into beautifully feathered chickens with the promise of eggs to come.
Note: I've researched Princeton policy on having chickens, and will elaborate on this and provide other demystifications in upcoming posts. It's important to have your neighbors on board (eggs can help with this) and, of course, be able to provide consistent care for the birds. Roosters aren't allowed, but aren't necessary for eggs.
