Feeding the Flock

Ivan Clark of Ireland feeds his chickens at his home on Thursday. Clark grew up raising chickens with his family. He now has a rooster and 26 hens. “It’s just kind of in my blood,” he said. “It’s just something I enjoy doing.” Clark wakes up with the sun and loves hearing the rooster crow in the early morning.
