Chickens arrive on a blue moon.

We recently welcomed a flock of not-so-spring chickens back to our side of the farms. This flock of 8 hens and 1 rooster is almost 4 yrs old and used to reside across the road from us. They are now staying with us until their owners find a new home and make it through their move.…
