People often ask me where I came up with the name French Hen Farm.
Actually my mom came up with the name.
I knew I wanted something in the name about my beloved farm or my chickens.
A few years ago , my mom saw a Christmas card that had a picture of a chicken and the words "3 French Hens" and she said "French Hen Farm!" There are three daughters in my family and my mom thought that was the perfect name, so we became French Hen Farm.
I LOVE my chickens. My husband HATES my chickens. I love watching them cluck around the yard.
They are so much fun to watch on a summer day. They are the pretty, fluffy kind, called Silkies.
I have to agree with my hubby though, they are a lot harder to take care of in the winter.
You have to make sure they are warm, and dry and their water doesn't freeze, and that they are fed.
We have to make sure that my son feeds and waters them. This is one of his chores...
He is not very good at his chores... so it becomes my husbands chore.
Hence, the reason my hubby HATES my chickens!
