    I'm taking the plunge. Raising chickens is never something I had ever pictured myself doing but life takes funny turns. I'm starting by raising meat chickens. Don't seem to be quite as long-term commitment. Red ranger. Making a hoop tractor.
    Couldn't do this without an amazingly supportive husband.

    In the rest of my life, I'm a Grandma, musician, and writer. We've traveled on a couple different continents and visited Calabra, near Puerto Rico. Chickens are everywhere. Might as well see what it is that the rest of the world already has figured out.
