Came home with Eli tonight and the neighbor came over to ask if we were missing a chicken.  I started thinking in my head who it might be.  She had mentioned one of the black ones.  I checked the barn and sure enough one of them was missing.  I can never tell who is Jackie and who is Marilyn unless they right next to each other.

Apparently free range means wander to the neighbor’s coop.  My guess is she wandered out, probably following Martha, and got lost.  She started following whatever chicken she could find.

The runaway and me heading home.

I am a school administrator by day and a new hobby farmer by night. My family consists of my husband, a farmer boy at heart, and myself, a city girl learning the ropes, along with our two children. We are excited to embark on this new adventure.
