Chick Chat with 202 Magazine

Friday, April 1, 2011
You all know I love to talk about my chickens. (Yes, I know it can be a bit extreme). Imagine my excitement when I had the opportunity to share my girls with 202 Magazine - a local magazine for the East Valley (Phoenix) area. 


202 Magazine did a feature on raising urban chickens for their April issue. Doesn't Flo look beautiful on the cover? The editor, Sondra Barr, and photographer Mark Susan spent a morning at our house getting to know our girls. We had such a great time! However, my normally friendly chickens were super camera shy and it was quite the ordeal which involved my tackling Flo (no chickens were harmed during the photo shoot) just to get her in the cover shot. Dirt and chicken poop all over my jeans - so embarrassing.


Raising backyard chickens has become quite popular in the past few years, especially here in the East Valley so we were excited to share our experiences with others who may have an interest in taking the chicken plunge.

Hi 202! We are doing great and enjoying the summer. We have four more baby chicks scheduled to arrive next month and we couldn't be more excited. Thanks again for the wonderful feature. It was so fun for us!
