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.

Dark Brahma hen
Nellie, the Dark Brahma
Did you know that Dark
Brahma chickens have feathered feet? I have two Dark Brahma chicks, Nellie and
Jolene. They are very noisy and energetic. When they are older, they will lay
brown eggs. It is going to be interesting to see what my girls look like as
they get older. I can’t
wait until they start laying!
Golden Laced Hen
Golden Laced Wyandottes are beautiful birds and great layers. I chose them for the
show bird category. Doris and Ingrid, my Golden Laced Wyandottes, are very
playful and friendly. When they start laying, they will lay big brown eggs.
This breed is considered rare, so we are lucky to have two of our very own!
