This week in Cookie Month ’14, we are doing a shout out for family favorites. Our family favorite has got to be chocolate chocolate chip cookies.

When it comes to bringing chicks into the world, there are two different methods to choose from. You can use an incubator or you can use a broody hen. Lets discuss the pros and cons of each. Plus, is it possible to make a hen go broody? The answer might surprise you.
Free ranging chickens is great, but what about those free range chickens that live where winter hits hard?
