Welcome to Carnesville, Georgia. Population: 569. There's one stoplight, one grocery store and hundreds of thousands of chickens. The Oprah Show is here to surprise Heather, a small-town chicken farmer. She wants to fly the coop for just one day of Tinseltown glamour.

Heather gave up her career as a high school math teacher to be home with her children. To make ends meet, she traded her chalk for chickens. Heather's job is not all fun and feathers, she says. "After I leave the chicken house in the morning, I'm just covered in…chicken stuff that I won't even mention." Between taking care of her children and her chickens, Heather has very little time for herself. "If I could just feel pretty for one day," she says, "I think that would help me out so much. The next time I'm in the chicken house, I can think of what I can be and it will help me get through."
