Many years ago, realizing that Chappy children attended two different elementary schools and a few were home schooled and therefore didn’t have much regular contact, we arranged a few weekend group activities. We planned a walk from Blow Your Bugle to the community center. Slip Away Farm had started raising chickens and we figured that we would make that an educational addition to the outing. When we were getting ready to cross the road, some in the foot-weary gang protested, pointing out that they already had more than enough experience with chickens. It turned out that every one of the dozen households represented on the hike had operating hen houses at home.
