What started out as a short video about raising backyard chickens really grew into an elaborate production from its inception 18 long months ago. In the fall of 2012, I asked my cugino Davide (cousin Dave) if he wanted to make a short video on raising backyard chickens. He not only accepted, but took the project to a level that I had never imagined. What follows is a 9 minute video on how to raise backyard chickens – Italian Style. Why Italian style????????????? Well…….I’ve got Italian blood runnin’ through my veins; though it has been thinned out over the generations and I thought that some humor would bring a bit of flavor to the topic.
If you are just starting out with backyard chickens………… than I hope I can help you along the way. If you’re a seasoned veteran…….well……… I hope I can bring a laugh to you day!
Thanks to cugino Davide for making this video. You did a fantastic job! Thanks also to cugino Dino for playing the mandolin, accordion and drums in the opening number. You are a multi-talented musician. Thanks to cugino Damiano for his rendition of an old family folk song at the close of the video. That song still cracks me up! But most of all, thanks Nono for the memory of those backyard hens you kept when I was a small boy. Who would have thought that this childhood memory would have grown into City Boy Hens!!
I hope you all enjoy!
