Name: Julie A Carda

After studying dance in Europe, Julie returned to the United States and graduated from Creighton University. With a desire to expand her knowledge of the arts and spirituality, she graduated from St. John’s University in Collegeville with a Masters in Theology and Liturgical Studies. Over the past twenty years, she has taught high school and college courses, and facilitated workshops on the healing arts while occasionally writing for academic periodicals. Her quest to acknowledge world religions and the desire to expose the similarities of love and peaceful living, led her to travel, live, and study with shaman practitioners, herbal healers, Native American medicine women, Buddhist priests and other earth-based spiritual teachers. Through these experiences and experiences with global metaphysical teachings, she learned to honor the eternal Source of love in all people. Besides writing fiction, Julie is co-creating a Space of Love through advocacy for Kin Domains.

Conversion: Step Four

Check this out--a Plexiglas door that slides up on a pulley. I can stand at the rear of the house pull the cord and let the hens run out into the coop. Then I can lower the door and do my daily maintenance. When I'm done and I've closed the rear doors, I can open the Plexiglas slider for the day.

The Plexiglas lets in lots of light so I don't need to be outside early in the morning. These chickens will have natural light, food, water, nesting boxes and a roost. I'm going to have the best chicken condo around town!

One tiny caveat here. The door operation reminds me of a guillotine and seems a bit gruesome. "Off with your head" is not something I want to contemplate about my chickens as they really are pets at this point.
