Chicks (not girls) in Detroit


Saturday night in Detroit was a night of animals. I wanted to share some photos because I imagine many people don't think of farms when they think of Detroit. So. First I visited some chicks at the TrumbullPlex, where Sunday's discussion was to take place (more on that later).

Alice the cat lives upstairs from the chicks.  


After that, I visited the volunteer-based farm, attached to the Catherine Ferguson Academy, a school for pregnant and parenting teens. I milked goats and played with barn cats. I never knew how much goats love to love. Amazing.

And I keep passing this on the street.  It seems to fit nicely with the night of animals...


Love what you're reading here? Then you'll love Bitch magazine. The reviews are snappy, the analysis in-depth, the writers are downright sharp, and the illustrations so often belong in a frame that you'll have to move over other artwork.

If you don't have a subscription to our award-winning 80-page quarterly magazine, it's definitely time to start one.

I love farms!

I work on one and milk goats. I like milking goats better than the angora goats I worked with before because the former interact more with humans and are very friendly, as these pictures attest. They give goat kissies and the goat equivalent of a huggy, which is basically them leaning on you.

Also, the LaMancha looks very disgruntled by the flash; either that or she's just not quite photogenic.
