Chickens Are Soothing For The Soul

Today, I want to share with you a fun part of my day and it involves our 1/3 acre property … out in the country. We’ve created a beautiful veggie garden and we have 7 amazing chooks. They are one of the big delights of my life.

They know when I am going to give them something to eat. They come running from wherever they are in the yard and I have to tell you … their very favourite food is strawberries out of the garden.

Have a look at the video to see what happens when I call them for strawberries. They are little wild strawberries – and yes, it was a huge disappointment when they started to produce fruit and they weren’t lush, delicious strawberries … but hey, the chooks love them.

The birds in the video sing nearly all day. They are my mum’s favourite sound when she comes to visit … yes, and there’s a rooster, too … we are supposed to be in a residential area where the rooster is not allowed – but somehow – we have a rooster for a neighbour. I don’t mind the crow of the rooster … as it doesn’t wake me up at 4am … but some of the neighbours are not its friend!

I hope you liked this little piece of my day. It’s very relaxing to listen to the birds and talk to the chooks … I’d even go so far as saying they are therapeutic and soothing for my soul.

Cheers … Julie

Hahhhaa Julie that was funny! Never having had chickens I was highly amused to see them all running to you like that. Totally amusing and delightful : )
