our new three feathered friends
Our neighbours are on holidays for a week and we are in charge of their chooks. They are three, which we bring our food scraps every morning and feed them with seeds morning and afternoon. We let them out to roam a little and then get them back into their cage. I think I would like to have some as well. The kids love them and playing with them, and I can see some running around in our garden (to be) as well. Plus it's a great way to get rid of our scrubs, plus we would have free eggs. A lot of benefits.... The only issue with them might be attracting rats, foxes and along with them snakes...But a lot of people here have them, so I'm sure there is a safe we for us to also hold chooks.
Lucille had a little tick (Zecke) yesterday. I was lying down with her, feeding her to sleep and I saw this tiny spot, thought it was a crumb, but it was a tick, which just started to eat itself into her skin. I got it out though...It was probably from the chicken area....
Ok, lots of photos from the feeding and being with them today and they can say more than my words :-).

- I'm a mother of two beautiful children. We are parenting in an autonomous way, not schooling and learning by living, taking each other seriously and all of our needs into account. So our life is very rich and exciting as we have the time to 'smell the roses' :-) and live in the moment, 'going with the flow'. We are part of a sustainable community. It's wonderful to live in harmony with the earth and for the children to grow up conscious of their environment. I'm a Yoga Instructor and BodyTalk Practitioner (www.bodytalksystem.com). BodyTalk stimulates your body’s innate ability to heal itself on all levels and no other modality has ever made that much sense to me...hence why I've become a practitioner:-). I also work as an independent Sales Advisor for the Learning Ladder, promoting and selling educational books and toys, facilitating get togethers in people's homes or public centres, as the products are only available via direct selling and it's something that the kids and I do together to 'earn' our home library. With two little children, my main yoga practice is 'living my yoga' in whatever I do.
