Now that the Obamas have a vegetable garden, why not throw a flock of chickens into the mix? Sure, they would have tasty, fresh chicken and all the eggs their hearts desire – but, having grown up with chickens, I know it takes a lot of work. Personally, I’d like to see the Obamas spending their time doing better things than tending to chickens. Can you really see Sasha and Malia, in their J.Crew frocks, picking up chicken poop on the South Lawn? I don’t think so. Let’s see how they do with the garden first.
