We care for this little acreage along Highway 1 in Johnson County, Iowa. If you come by to visit you can meet a few kids - both of the two legged and four legged variety- a couple of dogs and a whole lot of chickens. And two fairly tired but happy parents.

Today we had to clip Poppy's wings. Poppy is a California White. California Whites are a lighter breed so it is easier for them to fly. Poppy would fly up onto the six foot fence and get into our yard. When she is in our yard she is at the risk of being lunch to our dogs or cats. To clip wings you just clip the flight feathers on one of her wings so she is off balance and can't fly.
