Chooks:

Whatever the dog has is SPECIAL and much nicer than anything you have ever had. Ignore the growls and when he barks take one step back and then two steps closer.
The dog bed is a great place for finding those tasty scraps he has dropped
The dog bed is also a great place for a snooze when it is cold, particularly if he is already asleep on it
Dogs love chickens

Cats are totally different, spitting clawing nasty things to be avoided at all costs

Dogs:
Befrend the man of the house, he's more likely to drop things.

Cockerels:
When the man of the house is chopping the heads of things, be vewy vewy qwiet !!
Also, try not to be too wrapped up in the sound of your own voice, todays top rooster is tomorrows dinner.

Chooks:
Accept everyone as they are, the x-bred backyard layer has as much right to be there as the $100 pullet from show winning lines.

Ducks:
There is ALWAYS time for a chat.

I just cannot switch places. I have roosted here since I was a baby. I don't care if you can now peck my head from above. Ouch, ouch again, and again, and again...

CHOOKS.

When the back door slams:
run and flap your wings like crazy to get to the fence;
stand in a line and stare quietly, "there's a human coming and they might have food";
See human, empty handed;
cluck, cluck, cluck very loudly;
Human is walking in the other direction;
cluck, cluck, cluck extra loud effort this time;
No human, no food;
Walk away disappointed and take frustrations out on someone else..

GF

Not much to add here except saying thank you very much. I don't remember when was a last time I was laughing so hard. Gosh I am pretty sure I spit on my screen too. But it was totally worth it. My mind pictured it all for my in a cartoon style and that added to all the giggle. Can't really stop right now :)

CHOOKS:
I may look rough today (moulting) but you ain't seen nothing yet (post moult).


QUAIL:
Play endlessly while you have the energy, for you will be an adult before you know it & spend your time doing adult things, and old before you realise that your energy has waned.


DUCKS:
Bats are our friends (for they are first to identify when the fruits on the tree have ripened).

Chooks:
"It doesn't matter what happened at our owner's work, at the hospital where they have sick relatives, or elsewhere..... it doesn’t matter how many terrorists attacked cities, what President Trump is up to now, or what is happening in Australian politics,.... it doesn’t matter whether our owner is happy, sad, grumpy, healthy or sick, we will just keep going about our business and being, well basically - chooks."

They are a great reminder that the sun WILL keep coming up each morning and to me, are the ultimate teachers of living mindfully.

They know what's important...... having somewhere clean and dry to sleep and shelter, with enough food and water. They don't need storage, clothes or belongings - they just need each other.
