Nothing feeds the center so much as creative work, even humble kinds like cooking and sewing...Baking bread, weaving cloth, putting up preserves, teaching and singing to children...

So Far So Good
A quick update on the goings on in the coop area. Rudy found his way to the food and water I left for him on Tuesday afternoon, he eventually made his way back into the coop area and has been there since.
It has meant a slight change in the feeding routine to try and keep him from getting too excited when I go in and do what I have to do to keep things tidy. I did notice that when I put out the "treats" that Rudy was not really wanting to share with the girls.....he wanted his first! This morning I "smartened up" and sprinkled treats in a much larger area so they could all eat the treats and Rudy didn't get all the best of the goodies! It is my hope that after a these past few days of establishing a new pecking order things are going to quiet down. So far the girls are still laying eggs, but I have told Rudy that if he interrupts that process his is "outta here"!
