For the love of chickens! I never dreamed I would grow up and be married to a real chicken farmer in Mt. Pleasant, NC but here we are killing it. We love knowing where are eggs came from. We also like knowing where our chicken comes from. We have free range chickens including Silkies, Easter Eggers, Orphingtons, Barred Rock and everything else that is cute as a peep.
Chickens have unique personalities and I could watch them for hours. You can always learn something from a hen!
