Letter: Vialpando, Bird is the word

Bird is the word

Thank you for publishing the story, “In Fraser, bird is the word”. And thank you to the Town of Fraser for allowing birds in town. The article couldn’t have been more perfectly timed for us. We were planning a backyard garden project and when we saw the article, we immediately added a chicken coop to our plans. We have not had chickens before so we read up on raising chickens and watched many You Tube videos on how to build a chicken coop. We shared our plans with our neighbors and with a promise of fresh eggs, our plans were a go. We now have a really cool looking chicken coop (made from mostly recycled materials we picked up from free Craigslist ads) in our small back yard with our raised garden beds ready to be planted. The chicks will be hens soon and then we will have a nice supply of farm fresh eggs — for us and our neighbors! You just never know what you will find out about when you read the Sky-Hi News.
