Our home school project this summer is raising a flock of egg-laying chickens. We had a coop and pen built and are looking to have about 20-25 birds, but right now we have 16 of varying sizes, colors and ages. The kids are having a great time figuring out what the chickens will eat, naming them of course (everything from Snowman to Jasmine), and checking for eggs (although most aren't laying yet).
We also recently got a new dog. Another mzungu in town had him and couldn't keep him where she was living. He has several names including Afayo, Beebo and Scout.
So the Tuininga Farm now has 3 dogs, 4 cats, 10 pigeons, and 16 chickens...hopefully no mice and definitely no more snakes. And, just like I said a few animals ago, I think that's enough for now. ;-)
