Each morning we leave the comfort of the warm house and venture down to the cold backyard to feed the chooks. It's Lucas' job twice a day. He scoops up the chicken feed into a bucket and takes it into the pen. We fill up their water containers and usually stop for a little chat. "Hello Chickens".
On two occasions in the last four weeks Lucas has said he didn't want to go feed the chickens. I just reminded him that it was his job to feed the chickens and what would happen if we didn't feed them? "They will be very hungry mummy". It didn't take much convincing on either of these occasions and he soon put on his boots and we were on our way.
I can't wait for the chickens to start laying! It will be a magical moment when we discover the eggs. Look out for a post when that happens!! Do you have chickens or other pets? Do your kids help out with the care of them?
