I live in SE PA with a daughter, 2 dogs, 2 cats, fish, rabbits, ducks, turkeys, geese, quail and of course chickens!!! My suburban farmette is Pearberry Farm and I vend eggs, chicken and fowl on a small scale basis.
I hear people say chickens are addicting and they are right...but they are also loving, sweet, peaceful and they have given me back inspiration. In August 07 I became a widow, it was quite unexpected and I was shell shocked. To be honest planning for the chickens, getting the chickens(getting even more chickens) and building coops and runs etc has given me my life back. These chickens have been a Godsend. Who said there were no second acts in life...? You can start where you are and rebuild something new and just when you least expect it--you are surprised and amazed by the simplest of pleasures.
