I love seeing the chickens wander freely in our backyard and hearing them talk at the back door. I love giving all our scraps to those chickens knowing its not waste but going full circle. I love how Isabella comes to the kitchen with an egg in her hand saying 'look what Lou-lou made for me!'
It makes me feel like a piece of country is right here with us in suburbia.
And so it couldn't have been more perfect when at our weekly art classes the children made chicken baskets out of clay. They painted them in acrylic and we now have three more chickens making themselves at home- dracula , lou lou the 2nd, and silverwing.
