Customer Reviews

RinkyRain ,

Which came first? The chicken or the egg?

I so enjoyed Mary Lovstad’s first podcast- everything one wanted to know about raising chickens and a $500 quiche along with guest Michelle Marine. Such a fun banter of education, experience and humor! Listen closely to learn the fun names given to roosters and hens! Subscribe to follow Mary as she features Farm Women and Food.
