Spring chickens

spring chickens

Jake and Maisie's dog food comes from the Malibu Feed Bin, which, located where Topanga Canyon meets PCH, isn't actually in Malibu. It's a mom 'n' pop operation where local horse people and rural land owners buy food and supplies, and each spring can replenish their chicken houses with new chicks.

One of my neighbors raised about a dozen chicks from the Feed Bin and for one wonderful year, during which we would hear clucking and flapping and scratching in her fenced yard, and during which her neighbors would find the random renegade hen roosting on the hood of a sun-warmed car, we were all treated to the prettiest, freshest, most delicious eggs we had ever tasted.
