We are a creative homeschooling family of 3. I have homeschooled my 2 boys from the start and we do lots of unit studies and get out into our beautiful part of the world as often as we can.
As the boys are getting older and we are getting busier I find I am posting less about our journey but will continue to update occasionally.

For the love of CHOOKS!

My two boys love animals, they love all animals and our menagerie includes many mouths to feed and arrange care for if ever we want to be away at all.
We have the usual dog and cat, some budgies and fish, we also have lizards and the odd visiting tirtle or snake and we have,

the chooks!

Our Mr 9 has tamed and trained some of our chooks-

For your information here is


Wings of Bravery

(or just wingsie, just for short)

good night chookies.

Wingsie was his first really tame chook and he can get her to perch on his arm or his shoulder, apparently she is being a pirates parrot in that position.
Wingsie is certainly a chook with a lot of personality,
she will eat out of Mr9s hand,
she escapes constantly but is no trouble at all to catch again,
and will really try to catch Mr9s attention so he will come and play with her.
These days Mr5 spends more time with Wingsie
as Mr 9 is busy taming roosters and bearded dragons.

These are his current fascination and they look a bit scary to me,
but he happily picks them up, removes any ticks
and gives them a good feed on banana or egg or peas
and a good talking too about how nice it is to live in our garden
and how welcome they are to stay.
