Bedlam Farm Friends

Minnie came to the first Bedlam Farm as a feral kitten, she grew up with the chickens there. She especially loved Winston the rooster, she stayed by his side for days when he died, keeping the other chickens from bothering him. We sometimes think she thinks she is a chicken, and the hens love to sit with her on the Rapunzel Chair or hang out with her in the barn or on the porch.

Animal relationships are among the most fascinating things to observe here on the farm, chickens normally stay well away from our dogs and they never go near Flo, the other barn cat. They love Minnie, and Minnie likes to be with them. The Fiber Chair is a spirit all of its own here.
