Chickens seem like a great place to start and rescued ones are even better.

What beautiful chickens! And how sweet of you to rescue them. That's what happened to us. When we bought the farm, the people didn't want any of their birds, so we ended up with over a hundred chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese and guineas. I love everyone of them, too!

Many of our animals have come to us the same way. Many others were dumped along the road. You do a good thing!Enjoy growing your farm.

  Homeless Chickens
Our little hobby farm has started with this pair of chickens. We have taken in many homeless animals over the years. Someone gave a family member these white cochins because she thought they were pretty. They were passed off to another family member before we ended up with them. Fred and Daphne are getting quite tame and love watermelon!
