I don't know about Farmer Daddy, but we are hosting two nice hens in our yard for two weeks in their fancy a-frame chicken tractor. Casey the chicken guy told us not expect eggs, but we'll see how that goes. We also haven't named them yet. One is white and the other multi-colored. The multi-colored one is quite feisty and a bit dim.
My mother's family is from Colchester, Connecticut, once a hotbed of Jewish chicken farming in America. So I guess I'm back to my roots, in a strange sort of way. Updates as events warrant here and on facebook.
