Animals, For the Family, Living History
Experience life on the “one horse farm” in Horry County from 1900-1955 and learn about the different animals on the farm and their various roles. For farmers who wanted egg production from their hens, a broody hen could be a problem. When broody, a hen wants her eggs to hatch and may stop laying eggs if she is not allowed to hatch chicks. Join us as farm staff will talks about hens and ways to prevent them from becoming broody. The public is also invited to help feed the animals. From 9:00-9:30 visitors can select an ear of corn, shell it, and use it to feed the chickens.
