I love fermenting feed for my chickens. I love it so much, I can’t imagine how it could be more fun. That is, until my mom joined me!
I decided to make a demo video about fermenting feed with my mom. After we sat down and went through the demo, we got to talking about something people ask me about a lot. Just how did Chickenlandia get it’s name?
Most people assume I named it after a certain television show, but that’s actually not the case. The first glimpse of Chickenlandia was actually born many years ago, when my parents immigrated from Guatemala to a small Texas suburb. We lived in a great community, but as a child, I often felt alienated from my peers, and even my own family. Can you relate? I’m sure you can, because feeling lonely or different is another common denominator among human kind. For more on this, you can check out my latest YouTube video:
If only there were a place where everyone fit in, regardless of where they’re from, what they look like, or what language they speak! Fast-forward a few decades, as I sat among my first flock of chickens and felt such peace among them. The soft clucks and the pecking and scratching gave me such a tranquil feeling, and almost every chicken-person I’ve met has told me they felt the same way among their flock. I realized that chicken keepers all over the world, from all walks of life had this commonality. I thought to myself, THIS is where I belong. This is where everyone belongs. Thus, Chickenlandia was born.
If you only know one thing about Chickenlandia, I want it to be that you are welcome here.
Every. Single. One of you.
