THE MISSION

Welcome Mothers, Fathers, Grandmothers, Grandfathers, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Friends and anyone else who needs an ear...Please come with an open heart.

This is a place for anyone who has felt the loss of a child. Treat this as a communication haven regardless of how or when you felt your loss. My definition of loss: miscarriage at any stage, still birth regardless of week gestation, infant death at any month, and loss of a child even if your child was all grown up. For me they all hold the same root of devestation. None are more profound or more "easily" dealt with than another.

Please cry if you need to.
Please connect with others who are in your same space.
Please email me if you feel led to
Please comment so we know what you need
Please tell your story

Show and Tell - Chicken Tractor

Lest you have been thinking we are cruel and unusual round these parts where chickens are concerned...lay your eyes on this!

The CHICKEN TRACTOR!

This two story abode-on-wheels allows for the best grazing. It is fully equip with an easy-access food dispenser,


A peek-a-boo window for roosing and egg collection,

And, flying to the upper level is optional with this well-constructed staircase

The 'king' likes it!

And, since their move we have seen our first two eggs - count them, 2 eggs!! It seems they like their new home. But why, you may ask, did they have to leave the comfort of their existing home with ample space, roosting options, and a recent screened in porch?


Because...we needed space for twenty new babes!

Awww...so cute - for now! Be sure to see what everyone else is showing and telling.

That is so cool! I think it's great that your girls will learn all about life from beginning to end, and all that it takes to be responsible for life.

Sunday dinner at your house?
