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.

Conversion: Step Six

Is this a telling picture? Four guys to move the very heavy house. I used the same cage netting as on the coop to close in the little gap left on both sides of the house. I removed the blue temporary house from the coop and transferred the food and water into the remodeled hen house.

All four hens just stood and clucked at the house. After about an hour, I stepped into the coop and corralled them into the closest corner, then threw cracked corn into the house. They pecked along and up the little ramp like the birds eating Hansel and Gretal's bread crumbs until they were inside the house. Once inside, I closed the Plexiglas door for the night. I really hope they learn to go in at night without any prompts--keeping my fingers crossed.
