This,would have been better as a segment, rather than a too-long doc.

I thoroughly enjoyed it and thought the length was just right. My family has always had chickens and one sibling is a Chicken People, so I think I am the right audience for it. It's definitely not fast-paced or exciting, more a slow TV show to enjoy for the scenery.

Also, the follow-ups for all three featured is that they continue to have good animal-filled lives.

Agree this doc was like, medium in quality and derivative of other similar docs but... we still talk about this as a family several years after we watched it! The people are quirky, the chickens are beautiful.
