About The Egg Lady, Brenda
Welcome to Going Chicken website. I created this website to help chicken owners to find information on chickens and everything pertaining to chickens… The good, bad and ugly.
I am an Alberta, Canada farm girl, born and bred. I grew up on a small dairy and grain farm. My parents milked 30 to 40 cows, raised meat and laying chickens.
As a child my chores were to pick up eggs, feed and water the chickens, along with many other chores. The chickens would peck my hands or fly out of the nests…not my favorite chore.
As an adult, I married a farmer and now have chickens myself. I find now I enjoy the chore of chickens. picking up eggs, feeding, watering, cleaning the coop. I just enjoy watching the quirky birds.
Chickens are very entertaining creatures. They remind me of a prehistoric creature, scratching and pecking at everything. They are very curious and at times not shy. Watching chickens fight over a worm or blade of grass can keep you engaged for a long time.
I find chickens are peaceful to watch and just be around. Minutes can turn into hours just observing them do their chicken thing!
I deliver eggs to friends and family in nearby towns, that’s how I got named the egg lady.
Whether you have raised chickens for years, just getting into them, or want to start raising chickens, this website is full of information of my experiences.
I have raised meat birds and egg layers and the dual-purpose chicken, a layer/ meat chicken. I have the dual-purpose bird for laying eggs.
THE GOAL OF MY SITE
Raising chickens isn’t always cheap or easy though it is very rewarding. Through my experiences, I want to give you ideas and or products to help better your flock.
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
The Egg Lady
