In Memoriam: Henny Penny
Genesis lost a staple member of our farm this week. Miss Henny Penny was raised from a day old chick. Her siblings and her produced eggs for some time. Though the others in her flock joined the big roost, Penny was a survivor. She became a staple at the farm and many enjoyed feeding her and some even had the privilege of petting her. As she got older, and her eggs less desirable, it became a fun game of hide and seek for the kids to find her eggs and toss them in to the field. Penny would frequently show up for CSA pick up to be fed and to watch as everyone gathered their vegetables. She would roost under the tomato plants in Discovery Gardens and watch the families harvest their produce. Penny was with us for 11 years. May she rest in peace.

If you really take care of the animals surrounding you, they will give you the benefit that you want. Actually, I know nothing about taking care of chicken and hens. But I heard from my dad that they are one of the easiest animals to take care for. But of course, there is still a need for you to exert an effort with this matter since not all hens are friendly. Of course, there will be the aggressive breed, while there are some who will be kind!
