I took copious notes. I met Joel Salatin. I bought one of his books … Continue reading Meeting an icon
I went out at 8:45 Friday morning to let the chickens into the run, and I stopped dead in my tracks. The chicken hawk, the one who stole away with a good portion of my flock earlier this summer, was IN MY DRIVEWAY! He was staring intently at my hens through their pen, trying to … Continue reading He’s back!!!
