THANK YOU CHICAGO FOR BEING OUR NEIGHBOR!
As we finish 2018, we had a few opportunities to give back to our neighborhood. We received a call from a friend in the hood who asked us to visit the Positive Attitudes Working Day Care on Austin Boulevard and Chicago. All of us, Ioders, workers and kids had a fun time feeding two of our chickens. Pearl our gold hen and a Barred Rock (black and white) chicken came. The kids decided call the black and white hen ELOISE. She was very popular and curious investigating all the office.

Here's what others say...
I had big fun working with goats and I even met some guys from the neighborhood who are often coming over to help bringing the animals back from the pasture. I could hardly imagine a better host and I'm sure going to miss the time I was there."
