Fluffy Farming Adventures

Not only are my ears rebelling, but my throat has joined the uprise against me. I didn't go to work today. I clocked out an hour early last night and spent the final hour crying like a baby.

When Animal Adventures Inconvenience Humans

My sister, her husband, and … Continue reading More Tours & Goats & Fun Chaos

The Way of Chicken Farming

Oh boy, where do I even start? I was able to pick up the adorable cochin/silkie mixes! ย SO HAPPY. My Pet Poultry Happy Farm business cards arrived!
