Their Story

Our 4  chickens-- 2 barred rock and 2 grey Andalusians-- are called Harriet and Henrietta, Dixie and Dolly. The girls were acquired from a feed store as potential companions for our male Turkey Vulture, Harry, who has lived with us for 15 years now and as a social bird minus a vulture companion was in need of a friend or two. As Turkey Vultures can live to be 50 years old Harry has already outlived a few chicken companions.  His new friends also regularly provide one of Harry’s favorite foods.  Yep—you guessed it. A regular supply of fresh eggs!
