Tales from the ARVInn: 

Elliott, Chicken Little   


Elliott Springer (7/2003) was a farm boy through and through.  He grew up on the family farm near Youngstown and kept it going when his parents passed.  Even after contracting ARV in 2056, he persevered. When urban growth and a lack of family help finally forced him to sell, he came to ARVInn in 2076, looking for a new start. 

What he found was an opportunity to use what he knew with a different twist.  He started by raising a few show birds in a cage behind the warehouse. This soon led to a fascination and a desire to do more. 

Purchasing some property nearby, he quickly built a thriving business.  Raising chickens for the table and raising rare breeds for show don’t really need different skills or equipment.  He just had to add the facility for prep and sales.  His operation provides locals with fresh chicken and eggs, gives work to a dozen others and allows him the chance to travel to trade and competitive shows around the country. 

Not a bad life for a seven-year-old, even though he has to enter the adult divisions.  Just takes a little something to stand on to reach some of the bins in the chick shed.
