Well hello there – and welcome to Sorry Chicken!
My name is Charles and I’m the guy responsible for this crazy website. The name, Sorry Chicken, is just a playful & fun way to make the site more memorable.
Our story began in 2012 when my family bought a dozen chickens. Not knowing a lot about chickens at the time, we thought it’d be interesting – and funny – to buy a bunch of different breeds and bring them up together … as a big family. In hindsight, this wasn’t the best idea, but that’s what we did – we bought a pair of chickens from across 6 breeds for a total of 12 hens.
We initially raised them for their eggs and to keep our big yard free of bugs, but eventually, they became our pets. We built a chicken coop for laying and let the chickens during the day run around as free-range backyard birds.
Sadly, many have moved on, but 8 years later … we still have 3 going strong!
Chickens are curious animals. Ours each had a name and a unique personality. They’d peck at our big dogs (seemingly without fear), and yet would run from anything else that moved!
I hope this site adds a little value – and some entertainment – to your experiences with your chickens. 🙂
Thanks for checking out our site!
