"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....

Beautiful pictures! Any idea of the number of chickens at your farm?

I’m actually not sure at this point! Probably about 40.

I have those three chickens growing in my garden. The lacy wyandot my boys named Chuck is a very pretty bird and the favorite of the Rhode Island Red Rooster that the boys named Angelica. I have taken to calling him George now though. So much for a batch of sexed chicks.

My neighbor’s chicken’s come and visit every day, they love scratching around our horse yard. A few months ago, one of their chickens was being broody and my neighbor did not know what was wrong with her. I told her that chicken wanted to be a momma real bad and my neighbor could relate to that. They have no rooster, but we have a pair of Black Indian Runner ducks and our duck is not broody at all. I gave her some eggs for her chicken to sit on and one hatched. She is the happiest hen, a beautiful golden aracuna (spelling?) with her black duckling.
I enjoy all the pictures of your animals and their “antics”.
