How could I have forgotten our new feathered friends!?! Last November we adopted two chickens, Ricka (Rhode Island Red) and Flicka (Redstar). You can see them in the fabulous film Mad City Chickens this Thursday in the 2008 Wisconsin Film Festival.

They are a wonderful addition to our family and have been laying two gorgeous eggs a day since just after Christmas. They are affectionate and fun to watch, they efficiently process our compost into food for us and are a constant and tangible reminder that we really do care about knowing where our food comes from--in this case, our own backyard!

Are they in the final edit? In major scenes? The tix are gone for the film, so I may have to wait for the DVD.

From what I have heard, tickets have been sold out since day two of sales--maybe some available at the door? I believe our chickens have several scenes as babies--we shall see! We also have lots of friends (human and fowl) in the movie so it should be a fun night!
