My son Jacob Maxwell is 18 years old now and aims to be a veterinarian. He just started his first year of studies at Guelph University in Ontario, Canada to make that happen. That’s Jake here 6 or 7 years ago doing what he loves – taking care of animals.
Jake’s always had an interest in animals and he kept our flock of backyard laying hens for many years. Click below to see how he raised day-old Leghorn chicks to maturity in 2014, back when he was in charge of things like this on our Manitoulin Island homestead. Backyard homestead chickens are great fun and practical, as you’ll see.
