Radio chicken is the best!

Very informative, entertaining, and helpful. Carolina coops are masterful at giving you what you never knew you needed and this podcast is no exception. I had no idea I needed a chicken podcast in my life but, now it leaves me wanting more. Great first episode guys. Keep up the good work and don’t worry about the chicken police. You guys are doing things for the chicken community no one else is!
