About Me

My photo
I am a 42 year old woman that is about as happy and content as one person can be. My husband of 21 years and our 15 year old daughter live on five and a half acres out in the country. We moved from the city four years ago and never looked back. I homeschool our daughter. We also love our animals. Our daughter has a miniature horse and two rabbits. We also have a border collie, two cats (again), two pot belly pigs, four peafowl, three emus, 2 llamas and an undetermined number of chickens, lets just say ohhh about 200. I have many breeds, from layers to fancy chickens. I love poultry shows, I love fowl in general as I have come to find out through having more than just chickens. Chickens will always be my first love though. I do show some of my birds occasionally.

Check This Out

my friend's therapy duck :

 

Click on the link above and it will take you to Mumma4ever's journal. She has a very interesting video to see today.

 

In my comment to her I told her that this didnt seem so far fetched or unusual. I take Phoenix to my grandmothers nursing home everytime we go, per her request. She doesnt like a lot of things, but she likes him. I take him around to a lot of the elderly folks there to see. There eyes light up when they see me coming with him. He withstands a lot of shaky handed petting and holding, but he is a very good little rooster and takes it all in stride. :)

I remember you taking Phoenix to see your grandmother. Nice of you to do that. I'm sure things like that are a big enjoyment to people in the nursing home. Paula

I think animals are wonderful therapy for everyone.  I am surrounded by all kinds and you see how well adjusted I am....ROFLMAO...OK, probably not the best example but I do think they brighten the spirits of those they touch.

That is wonderful.  Animals are wonderful for elderly to enjoy.  Last weekend we went to a ranch bed and breakfast, the owner had a pair of chickens that everyone had a fit over.  If you get a chance go to my blog and maybe you can tell us what kind they are.
