Our three chicks are loved. I have to say, for me this has been a life changing event. My husband has done an excellent job taking care of them and building them a coop. Of course he has his two little helpers to help him. Vivian and Ella have decided that they will no longer eat chicken. When asked why they said they just didn't feel good about it. I get that. I've always had a weird relationship to food. I still do. I put off watching Food Inc.for that reason then this past weekend I borrowed it from the library. Whoa. Exhale. Yikes. I have come to an understanding that I only want to feed my family happy food. I would love a book recommendation about happy food. A few years back I read Barbara Kingsolver's book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. She took her family on an intense journey that really made perfect sense. I have a long way to go to live up to that but I do wish to devote myself to a better way of eating.
