Earlier this month, the world celebrated World Egg Day. This got me to thinking. Why aren’t we celebrating the chicken? So easily overlooked by many, it seems fitting to draw attention to these amazing animals. Chickens not only deliver fresh delicious eggs to our door, but they also make fantastic pets. They are capable of emotions and bring much joy to my family on so many levels. I felt that there ought to be a day celebrating the backyard chicken.
During the entire day on November 5th, Hug a Chicken Day™, people across the globe will be hugging and posting their pictures to this Facebook event. On this day, please take the time to honor your chickens for all that they provide to your family and the world. I hope to be joined by fellow chicken keepers in saying thank you. All are welcome to attend and celebrate. Last, but not least, mark your calendars. I think this one might just set some sort of world record.
