    Lol. Yeah, the only problem with free-range chickens is…they’re free-range. Just think, they’re giving you your own private “Easter egg hung” each and every day. Cause it’s that or pen them. Of course, somebody will get broody and one day, you’ll find babies toddling after mama.

    Why did the hen need to go to the store? Is she stocking up too?

    I know the feeling! We have 9 free range chickens and one day the wind blew the door to the chicken coop shut(we don’t have the little chicken door in yet). I didn’t notice until the afternoon and because they couldn’t get in the coop they laid their eggs somewhere in the yard! I had to ‘coop’ them up for about a week only letting them out after they laid their eggs but once in a while we’ll find an egg laying around. I think the snakes are finding them as we found one egg in the driveway that looked as though it had been rolled…guess the snake couldn’t get to a tree or a rock before being scared off…dang chickens. I found one today in front of the porch…now the plan is to make a large run and only let them out in the evening just before it’s time to roost. Oh well…I’ll sure miss seeing them all over the yard.

    No, we have never eaten any of our chickens! I was kidding them.

    I was on edge wondering what her fate was. We could never eat our girls either. We have a gal that is 8 years old and still lays. How many is that is human years? Glad to know the little hen is still alive!

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....
