There's yet another celebrity chicken farmer . . .

Natalie Coughlin, the 11-time Olympic medalist (3 Gold, 4 Silver, 4 Bronze) who was "the most decorated female athlete at the 2004 Athens and 2008 Beijing Olympics", keeps five backyard chickens at her home in Lafayette, California. It seems that in her downtime, she's a bit of a homesteader who loves cooking, farming and even photography.

Read an interview with her, Natalie Couglin, Gold Medal . . . Farmer? by Avital Andrews, in Sierra Magazine.

We're all crossing our fingers in hopes that Natalie makes the cut for this year's Olympics in London!
