He reassured me that chickens are remarkably easy to handle and he shared with me his golden rules for raising chooks:
I've noticed our chicks respond to Left Coast Mom in a more accepting manner than they do to me, and I think it's because she sings to the birds at night (but don't tell her I told you).
- As one of my Mexican friends revealed the most important secrets: Sing for them every morning... They really like it and in no time eggs will be piling up.
- Consistency, chooks are birds of habit. Here in Chad whenever bombing takes place I need to nurture their bruised souls. I gather your life in a city is slightly calmer in the US but you never know. Cars & boisterous neighbors influence the mental state of mind
- Foods, only the best will do!
- Spacious area so the pecking order does not get out of control
I'll take these rules to heart, and embrace the way Ashis signed his note:
May you be flooded in eggs.Indeed!
