"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"

Chicken Tending

Ranch chores continue here near Bridgeport, Nebraska.
The project:
Replace water and feed the chickens, gather eggs, check on their well-being.

10 minutes (but it could have been done in 5)

Why bother?
These chickens provide ample eggs to our host, their family and friends. This is another mundane chore to our hostess, but fun and easy for us. The girls particularly enjoy checking for eggs throughout the day, washing them and putting them away.

Worth it?
Yes. Once again, it took another little load off our hostess, who seldom gets a break from daily chores. Plus the girls had a blast with it. Yep...we're easily entertained. Is that such a bad thing?!
