Poultry on the Farm - 1937
Poultry on the Farm – 1937

Welcome to Farmer Brown’s poultry farm, where he raises chicken, ducks, geese and turkeys.

Visit the chicken coop where the head rooster rouses his harem of hens for breakfast.

White leghorn chickens lay an abundance of eggs which need to be incubated for healthy chicks to be born.

Take a look within the shell as the chick develops over time, pecks its way through and grows from a downy baby chicken to a full-size adult within 2 months.

Farmer Brown has some Plymouth Rock chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys, as well.

Most of them will become dinner for Thanksgiving and Christmas revelers at the end of the year.

Perhaps this is why they roost in the trees, to keep away from Farmer Brown.
