To my luck, a few days ago I was browsing the internet and came across Balls’ new vintage throwback canning jar and it was like fireworks went off. Of course! We drink out of mason jars all the time, and now these ones were pretty enough to place on display in a gorgeous vintage blue color. I ordered a few cases and lined them up in my window style cabinet.
For quite some time I have been toying with the idea of getting chickens. I love the idea of having baby chicks around to help my children learn responsibility and how nature works to provide for us. This, however, is a big decision. Sure, little chicks are cute and having fresh eggs would be divine, but don’t forget that chickens are a lot of work. While they are usually quite content pecking away on their own, they still need a lot of care. Here are several things to consider before getting chickens.

This lovely book is written by Heather Harris. You can also view her blog at The Homesteading Hippy.
Any readers raising chickens that can share their experiences with us? I am so curious and want to know more! Please leave your thoughts on raising chickens in the comments.
