How many times has it happened that you think of an old show you used to love watching and wonder what the actors are doing after so many years? I guess many of you that have seen “Little House on the Prairie” and were eager to see each new adventure of the family living on the farm in Plum Creek near Walnut Grove, Minnesota, would love to know what the actors are up to these days.

Those fans who were fond of the actress playing Mary Ingalls, beautiful Melissa Sue Anderson, were convinced she would continue being part of their life through the small screens, but she had other plans.

Today, she speaks of her decision to leave Hollywood behind and move to Canada.

This actress started her acting career playing guest roles, and had her way into the showbiz when she became one of the central figures of “Little House on the Prairie.” Her acting brought her several nominations for Best Lead Actress in a Drama Series, and her fans knew she deserved it.

Speaking of her experience filming this drama that made her famous, back in 2010, Anderson told Pop Entertainment, “I’m lucky that there even was a character to play, because in the book, there isn’t much of one. Laura [Ingalls, author of the Little House novels upon which the series was based and the story was centered] was a quite older woman when she wrote the books. She was remembering the best of her life. The characters of Ma and Mary didn’t factor in a lot. There was a lot of Laura and Pa and Laura and Jack the dog and Laura and Mr. Edwards, but there wasn’t a lot of Mary. I’m fortunate that they discovered that I could act.”

She tried herself in other minor roles after Mary Ingalls, but then in 1990 she got married to television producer Michael Sloan and moved to Montreal in 2002 with her husband and their two children, daughter Piper and son Griffin.

In 2007, the family became Canadian citizens and with the new life came new commitments, so Anderson decided to let go of the showbiz because she wanted to spend more time with her kids and didn’t want them to feel pressured to pursue acting careers themselves.

In an interview with E-Talk, Anderson said, “I really stepped away for a long time. That was really for the kids so they would have their own sense of who they were as opposed to being with me.”

However, Anderson didn’t step back from acting completely, but took small roles over the recent years. Her life-changing experience of being part in a series like “Little House on the Prairie” encouraged her to write a memoir titled The Way I See It: A Look Back at My Life on Little House.

A farmer found black eggs and when THIS hatched he was seriously scared!

John is an American farmer who owns a large plot of land with a vibrant vegetable garden, a blooming orchard, and his comfortable home. John keeps hens in a coop next to his house, some of which he uses for his own purposes and some of which he sells. Over the years, this arrangement has worked well for him, increasing the productivity and self-sufficiency of his farm.

Occasionally, John is used to discovering eggs strewn all over his property, particularly in the vicinity of the greenhouse where his hens enjoy running amok. Since his free-range hens behaved in this manner normally, there was never any reason to be concerned. But one morning, John noticed something strange that caught his attention.

John found a group of perfectly black eggs next to the chicken coop. He had never seen anything like this before. John was surprised at first by the striking black hue of the eggs, but his curiosity overcame him. He was intrigued by these unusual eggs and chose to incubate them in a warm, dark corner of his barn, just like he would any ordinary chicken egg.

The eggs started to hatch after several days of patient waiting, exposing their even more amazing contents. The chicks that emerged astounded John since they were entirely black, down to their beaks and feathers. John was excited to learn more about these unusual birds because he had never expected to see this sight.

The chicks turned out to be Ayam Cemani, a rare species distinguished by their remarkable all-black look. Their interior organs and bones are also included in this distinctive feature, which goes beyond appearances. John found out that his affluent neighbor, who specialized in uncommon breeds, was the breeder of these unusual chickens. It seemed as though one of his neighbor’s hens had inadvertently strayed into John’s land and lay eggs.

For John, the discovery of the Ayam Cemani chickens was a thrilling experience that brought a sense of mystery and variety to his farming life. In addition to introducing him to a new breed, this event deepened his relationship with his neighbor and sparked conversations about possible future partnerships. Though surprises were nothing new to John’s farm, the emergence of these black chicks was a wonderful exception that brought to mind the never-ending wonders of the natural world.
