Very cool! I want a chicken.... Only chickens though, no roosters and I'll only rent them for the season so they eat all the bugs!

You could always get a few...use em for bug control....great fertilizer then......well.....dinner for the winter???

Mind you...don't think I'd be happy to see Penny and Phil go that way...they are too cute and are spoiled rotten! Layers these ones...
