Now that our chickens are a bit more contained, we've started feeding them scraps or spoiled veggies from the kitchen. And my goodness with 3 children we have scraps. It seems like I sweep up and entire meal from the floor every day.
They gobble it up. This morning I even threw in some kale leaves, because if you will remember from my garden last summer, it is their favorite! Four eggs so far this week.
t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.
