1. The Chicken Lawyer had too many chicken pictures;
2. The Chicken Lawyer had too much fun saying “Chicken Lawyer”;
3. The Chicken Lawyer wanted to promote 2 notions:
* Keeping chickens is fun!
* Lawyers can be fun, too!
Since venturing out onto the Internet, The Chicken Lawyer has discovered other lawyers with chickens, so today’s blog is a compliment to just a few other J.D.’s with too many chicken pictures!
Kathy runs an impressive chicken keeping enterprise! She has a flock of over 50 beautiful chickens and is the founder and one-woman driving-force behind her blog The-Chicken-Chick.com and Facebook page (which is a Chicken Lawyer favorite!).
Kathy writes for Hobby Farms Chickens and Hobby Farms Home magazines and online blogs belonging to Mother Earth News Magazine, Grit Magazine and Manna Pro Poultry. She’s even brought the world of chicken-keeping into The Wall Street Journal!
The Chicken Lawyer did not have to look far to find another chicken keeping lawyer.
Perhaps they should offer a class in Poultry Law at The Northern Illinois University College of Law, because the school is hatching Chicken Lawyers!
Both myself and Laura Hodge-Ulrich are new to the chicken keeping world.
Laura is a licensed attorney in Illinois and has practiced mainly injury law in both Central Illinois and Chicago.
Like a true lawyer, Laura has meticulously studied humidity, yolk absorbing, dry membranes, positioning, etc! Unlike most lawyers, Laura can tell you a story about chasing a weasel out of her chicken coop via water hose. I asked Laura if she used her legal skills while raising chickens, and she promptly fired back that she was contemplating naming a chicken “Blackacre,” and then having mock trials regarding who really owns him. Folks, that might be the first Chicken Lawyer joke. And, you heard it here first!
