Goodbye Chickens

For the past couple of years, our family has raised chickens as part of homeschooling for the kids.  We have all come to enjoy the chickens, despite the upkeep they require.  Joshua has written his own eBook about chicken raising and had been trying to train one of the chickens (whom he named "Champion").  Unfortunately, we recently had to give up our chickens after our neighbor complained about them to our landlord (who is a relative of our neighbor).  We were all really sad to see them go, as they had become part of our life here.  And they were giving us 6-7 fresh eggs per day. 

We are thankful to God for the opportunity to have the chickens and are all agreed that we'd definitely like to keep them again in the future, if we have the opportunity.  Please see below for several pictures from our last day with our chickens.

Our Very Own Banana Tree

Despite the fact that we live in the middle of downtown Bangkok, we have been blessed with a small area around our house where we have attempted to grow a number of things.  Most have been failures. But we were finally able to get some banana trees to grow and recently harvest our first (very large) bunch of bananas.  They were way too many bananas to eat ourselves so we shared them with several neighbors.  Here's some pics.

Raising Chickens for Homeschool

Another missionary family was raising chickens and we thought we would also do that as part of our homeschooling experience. They were going to give us a hen and a Thai pastor was going to give us a couple of chicks. We were happily surprised when we received the hen AND a mother hen with her five 3-day old chickens. We had been building a hen house and preparing the place for months, so the children were ecstatic to finally get the chickens. The chicks have since grown quite big and are shedding their fuzzy feathers. They are starting to spar with each other. Caitlin really enjoys mothering the chickens. She wants to catch and hold the chicks whenever she has an opportunity. The kids also enjoy looking for eggs (we’ve got 4 so far!).
