For Your Viewing Pleasure

View of barn from ArkWorks Farm, the farm needs lots of TLC. Lots of junk laying around and outbuildings (like that corn crib) which are dilapidated. The barn is still in good shape-structurally.

My garden-raised beds approx 2 1/2 feet wide x 15 ft long with lots of lawn clippings in the walkways the rest of this fenced area will be sown in cover crops-the soil is very clay-like.

The laying flock temporarily housed in apple orchard. Banties and leghorns. Any idea what the big black rooster is? He is very mild tempered toward people, and has this beautiful green sheen. He was included as a free 'rare' breed with last years cornish cross meat birds.

Oh my, your chickens are GORGEOUS.
I only know of one large black chicken-Jersey Black Giant. He IS rather large....a possibility.
They weigh ~12-13 pounds....go weigh your chicken! :)

Congratulations!! Relax about what is going to happen next, go with the flow. You may worry about having your house ready to show, but the person buying it won't care if they like it. We worry too much about appearances and too little about being happy with what is. Great things are afoot, yipeeee! Peace for all
