Backyard Chickens

I know the rest of my family wants a dog
or rabbits or some other animal,
but I think chickens are the perfect kind of pet.

They live outside.
Not too noisy.
They don't mind too much when the boys pick them up.
They take care of most of our scraps of leftover food.
Kids love to feed them bread.
We don't have to worry about them in the winter.
If we let them out, they eat all the bugs up.
Their droppings are good for our garden.
And they give us eggs each day.
