Six Chickens Please
In 1932, Elizabeth, widowed with three children, married widower Fred Coleman, who had one daughter. Together they rent a small house, and to help feed the family, Elizabeth bought six chickens. Later they are able to move to a bigger house, where Elizabeth gives birth to two more children - and buys more chickens! A super story of a family living on very little, but love and hard work.
