When Jane Ashley was in the 4th grade, the Coffee County Farm Bureau Women’s Committee, chaired by Kem McKinnon, hosted an Ag in the Classroom and incubated chicken eggs. Students had the opportunity to adopt a chicken and Jane Ashley quickly volunteered. Since then, her flock has grown and she currently has 10 chickens.
Jane Ashley is the daughter of Melissa and Tony Rowell of Douglas. In her spare time, she enjoys playing with her chickens and training her bird dogs.
