When I was a kid our dad brought home one or two dozen chick eggs each year to hatch and raise. It wasn't uncommon then to have a garden and some chickens, turkeys, or rabbits if you had a big enough yard for the pens! It was fun for my brother, sister and me and it was a good learning experience too - especially when we found out later why the chickens kept disappearing one by one - our family was having them for Sunday dinners!
I've always had a kind of soft spot in my heart for chickens because of how cute and cuddly they are as babies. It's surprising how many card buyers love chickens also - it's become a classic Kalico Kard to stock. The rooster on this Birthday card reminds me of the fearsome rooster back then. The message inside the card is: "Today you've got something to crow about, sun up to sunset!" - click here to purchase or view a larger image of the card! It can also be personalized for you with his/her name on the card's front.
My daughter has a fondness for chickens also - she teaches second grade in a Christian School and each year she brings a half dozen eggs into the classroom and sets up an incubator for the hatch - the children get all excited waiting for the day - it's a good learning experience for them to watch them grown! A fter they've outgrown their home in the classroom pen, she takes them to a local farm.
