Obedient Chickens


The kids and I noticed that our cats will not listen to us, but will obey Andreas immediately, amazing considering he is a city boy who does not like animals. If he asks the cats to go out the door they will run out. If I ask Lovie to exit, she will look at me and say, "who are you?" then she will turn around and lick her backside.

Andreas saw Goompy on the porch Monday, so he walked to the door and said, "Shoo! Go to your room." Goompy jumps off the porch and runs to her coop instantly, just like a little military soldier. We all started laughing hysterically, and Speckle starts chirping loudly and making a fuss so Andreas walks to the window and tells Speckle, "You go to your room too!" I kid you not, she turns and runs to her coop too!
What does this mean? In Genesis 1:26 God says that man should have dominion over the animals. Maybe this is Andreas's special gift.

Kind of like the "rain man" of the animal kingdom...

I wish I could grow cilantro. I love love it. Your chickens are so awesome. My husband wants to buy land and raise chickens. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. :) I think you should go for it and cover your pillows with that fabric. I would. I just threw some pillows out that were loosing stuffing all over the house - because I'm a non-sewing sahm. Too bad you aren't my next door neighbor. I would buy the fabric and you could sew.
