Summary
A flock of feathered fryers (or layers) catch the air on this poultry farm in the Sacramento Valley circa 1905. Chickens have been a source of income in the Sacramento area for over 150 years, and certain communities, like Rio Linda, have been linked with eggs and the poultry business for almost a century. This Sacramento scene cost a cent to mail when it was new, and the lucky recipient of a Sacramento chicken postcard knew it was a penny well spent.
