Around the Bend: Tales of chicken dreams followed by hillbilly drama


Daneele and her husband Jay Shipman live in rural Frazee with their children Carter and Cassidy. Daneele is originally from the Chicago area, but has lived in Frazee for over 20 years. Daneele enjoys reading, quilting, knitting and gardening. She is a freelance writer for the Frazee-Vergas Forum and a Frazee Area Community Club director.

 This spring I happened to mention to my dad that it might be kind of fun to have a few chickens that laid eggs. We now have what Jay has dubbed, “Nellie’s Chicken Ranch.”
