They worked, they studied, then they partied at prom. They signed each other’s yearbooks. They traded cell phone numbers and email addresses. They hugged and promised to stay in touch, and they pressed their eager beaks against the fencing wire of their chickhoods, and then–then!–they took their first steps into their unfettered futures.

Their freedom.

They can drive, vote, fight wars, and sign contracts.
IMG_7900
They can marry, divorce, have babies of their own.
IMG_7901
They can love, laugh, fly, dream.

Mostly, I hope they dance.

    I love your take on the world, Suzanne. You could make a pile of manure sound romantic! Not that chickens are in the same category, but you know what I mean. :wave:

    Love it! I have a question for you. Any advice/tips on keeping our chickens off the front porch? It can’t be gated and as much as I love my chicks, the pooh is not attractive! Please email me.
    Thanks and love your blog-

    I don’t know, Michelle. My porch is on the second story, so they don’t come up there. The only thing I can think of is that you may have to screen the porch in! (Not a simple solution…. Maybe someone reading here will have another idea.)

    Great loooking class! As a city gal, I’m curious – once you let them free, do you have trouble gathering eggs? By the way, grilled corn yesterday according to your instructions and it was the best corn I ever ate!!! I went to the produce stand this morning and got more for tonight!!!

    Yes, sometimes I have a hard time finding their eggs! I have to search for their hiding places.

    Too funny! Little N. is only 8, but i might just have to bookmark this when he graduates.

    he has 4 chicken entered at the county fair. They look pretty spiffy compared to some of the other entries–keep your fingers crossed! Nice glossy feathers and FAT! All three hens laid eggs already today and the rooster. . .just as happy could be!

    Congratulations chickens! Made me think about my own grad just a few … erm … years (not decades) ago. I don’t remember voting ‘most likely to’ over anyone. Hmm. Maybe I missed that. Wonder what my grad class would have voted me as mostly likely to? On second thought maybe I shouldn’t wonder about that! Great chicken pix!

    You are right–I love my chickens scratching around in yard and eating bugs-a little pooh on the porch is even ok-just keep a bucket of water nearby to wash away-my husband does kind of freak at that :purpleflower: :snoopy:

    Who was the commencement speaker and what was the message? Maybe “Keep your head about you when the going gets rough”?

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
