This 73 Year Old Lady Needs Help!

On Friday Dec 8th around 4:00am Judy woke up to find her Barn and Business was going up in flames. For the past 8 years judy has been running a Poultry Hatching and Growing Farm (Poultry Hollow Hatchery). Why does she do it? Because she is the person that lives to help. Judy has given her 2 Grandsons jobs. She has gone above and beyond noy only for family but for strangers as well. Starting the business so her grandkids could work to earn money while still in high school keeping it up and running for 8 years. After all the blood(yes real blood), sweat, and tears from her, son, and grandsons, Judy had to wake up to Devastation! After calling 911 Judy called her son, daughter, and grandsons who all live on the same farm for 35yrs. We all got to the barn to find it completely engulfed in flames and our Mom running in  trying to save chickens. Everyone started helping to save birds, NOT contents and belongings, our priority was the birds! Unfortunately we were only able to save about 100 out of about 2000 and the barn and building around barn are a 100% loss. Not only being a family business it got 73yr old Judy up everyday and has given her something to do. Finding out there is only $15,000 insurance on the barn ( which does not even cover the equipment) because of an error in the size of the barn I have decided to look and ask for help for this Single Mother of 2, Grandmother of 4 and Great Grandmother of 1 so far.

You can see Poulty Hollow's website with video of Judy talking about the farm in an interview.

Because of the wonderful support we have received from our chickens friends, yes that means YOU, encouraging us to rebuild, WE ARE!!! Our first building will be delivered this week. We have purchased some new brooders and they are here already.
Meanwhile, we have about 1,000 chicks in my utility room. We still cannot change the inventory sheet on our website. At 2 weeks old, we have Gold Laced STANDARD Cochins, Silver Laced Wynadottes, and Ameraucanas pullets. At 4 weeks, Gold Sex Link, Black Sex Link, Buff Orpingtons, Barred Rocks, Welsummers, Barnevelders, Black Jersey Giants, Black Minorcas, Buff Minorcas, Cuckoo Marans, Bantam Cochins, Silkies, Old English Bantams, and D'anvers Bantams. And we have some 12 week old Black Australorps. Everyone has been vaccinated for Marekis Disease. It is so good to hear the chirping again, very healing. Please let all your chickens friends know "we are back"!!
As far as insurance, they are refusing to pay for ANYTHING business related which really hurts financially. "Where there's a will, there's a way".
Please call me with any questions about the chicks.
Thank you for your outpouring of love,
Judy, Poultry Hollow

We are slowly getting the mess that was left behind after the fire cleaned up. It is still heartbreaking for me to be around it. The memories keep popping into my head even when I update our post.

Todd, Mitchell, Ryan and I went to the barn today to help us remember items for the insurance list. This was the fourth time I had been to the barn since the fire and it's not getting any better. So very sad to see the devastation.
