    We're members and go up every few weeks or so. This weekend they were hosting a Revoluntionary War encampment which was HUGE! I thought folks on here would enjoy a couple pictures of their chickens, as well as the 3 and 6 week old calves, whom I happened to catch a picture of as they galloped up the field. Pure luck!!
    From today, from a bit of a distance: [​IMG]

    Quote:That's my question too. Sturbridge Village prides itself on it's historical accuracy.
    The workers dress is period clothing and even speak that way.

    I once asked a woman where do all the "kids" sleep. The houses were small and
    the families large. She kept insisting the barn, they slept in the barn.

    I asked when I went last year what sort of chickens they were, and they said they started with some historical breeds but since then the chickens have sort of run wild, mating with each other. They just put out feed for whatever chickens happen to show up at feeding time, so now they are all mutts.
