Have you ever had to give up something so dear to your heart? Something that brought you joy and a smile just to think about? Multiply that by 20 and that was my heartbreak last night when I sent my chickens home with a friend. The only thing that kept my heart from breaking was that I gave them to a friend who lives nearby and loves animals. Yup, the chickens will be happy and reunited with some of their former family there, plus they'll meet a whole host of other farm creatures they haven't known before. Maybe we will be able to get a new place that has some land and take a few there to start again. That's the hope. In the mean time, we are bolstered by their placement and our ability to go visiting them.
