I think this is pretty wonderful that a little girl from this era would have parents allowing her photo (rare in those days) and be allowed to have her pet chicken in it, too! She's darling and could care less about her part in the picture..how sweet. little girls, vintag children, vintage photos, family portraits, vintag photo, pet chicken, rare photos, vintage girls, vintage cards

A Food Your Chickens Should Avoid: Plants from the nightshade family - Nightshade plants such as potatoes, tomatoes, and eggplants have a toxic substance in their unripened fruit and leaves called solanine that could be harmful to your flock. Even the peels of potatoes are potentially harmful and should be avoided. If you have a large amount of leftover nightshade vegetables (potatoes or peels), cook them first and your chickens will enjoy the treat even more. basket reck, eggs, chicken egg, chicken coop, countri life, rooster, vintag egg, egg basket, hen
