Ever since Mom was a little girl ( a very long time ago) she has wanted a “hen house”, so she could have the freshest possible eggs. She loves to watch the chickens, too… but it’s the thrill of totally fresh eggs that lights her up.
Before she joined Cindy (her daughter), and even later, she would drive a hundred miles or so to “Amish Country” in Ohio just to buy “Farm Fresh Brown Eggs”. Never mind she would buy several dozen at a time, only to dole them out very carefully. After all, it would be a while before making the trip again.
When everyone moved to Utah in 2005, and suddenly had plenty of land, her first request was for a “hen house”, where she could gather her own “Farm Fresh Brown Eggs”. It took about 18 months, and sheep came before lambs,
