We have 11 chickens left, and Clarabelle, our remaining buff Cochin, is sitting on 7 eggs that we hope hatch next week! Loss is inevitable on a farm, but each one hurts a little. Many people don't realize how strong yet compassionate you have to be when you choose a life on a farm. It doesn't matter if you choose to have just a few backyard chickens or have a large commercial farm with hundreds of animals, this life is definitely not for the faint of heart! Many days you just get by on a hope and a prayer.
