With 40ish free ranging hens and a few roosters tossed into the mix, it stands to reason that we’d have a few surprise hatches on our farm. But how do you deal with a surprise hatch? What do you do when a line of little fluff balls comes trailing out of the woods behind their proud mother hen? And do you do anything different when you discover a batch of chicks with no mama?

"Buy a farm," they said. "It will be fun," they said. Now I'm living a peacefully chaotic life on five acres in central Minnesota where we raise chickens, pigs, pheasants, and kids (the human kind). I'm always up for a new adventure whether it's in the barn, the garden, or the kitchen. I write about my successes, failures, disasters, and thoughts at afarmishkindoflife.com. If you join me, bring strong coffee. :)
