I never thought I’d be a crazy chicken lady, especially after a childhood in which the closest I got to “nature” was mowing the backyard for $5, yet here I am. After five years and fifteen chickens, I’ve learned that they’re funny and fascinating creatures, and that starts from the moment they’re born. Our latest additions to the flock are no different. While some of their qualities are expected (the adorable factor, for example, is very high) they have a few other quirks that I’ve learned through trial and error. (Mostly error.) In this post, I share my top five.

I'm a writer, reader, and backyard homesteader living in coastal North Carolina. By day, I'm a digital marketer with an MFA in creative writing. Early in the mornings, I'm working on a novel and a collection of short stories. I share a home with my husband Nathan, a fat dog named Calvin, 15 chickens, two beehives, and a small garden that doesn't get nearly enough sunlight. Better Than Never is where I write about living on a budget, homesteading in a rental house, and finding meaning and magic in every ordinary day.
