A while back, my cousin gave us a beautiful pair of Jersey Giant hens. They were 18 months old and were laying eggs. He said that Jersey Giants were slower to mature but made great layers. Zoey and I Ooohed and Aaaahed over them for days. They are solid black with bright red combs and piercing black eyes. They would not let us get near them though. My cousin said they were very friendly with his family and I hoped they just needed a little time to get used to us. In the mean time, I thought this would be a good time to have Zoey do a little research project.

Hello! My name is Kamay Flemens. I homeschool both of my children, Alex 18 and Zoey 10. I teach homesteading, survivalist and life skills right along with their regular core curriculum. I believe it is a lost art and necessary in these times. My husband and I are amateur preppers that believe prepping should begin with a debt free, frugal, live within your means lifestyle. Also, I believe if you are going to 'talk the talk, you need to walk the walk.' Instead of just learning, this year we have begun our homesteading adventures by adding chickens, rabbits and a feeder pig to our small property. My daughter and I have also learned food preservation through water bath canning and oven dehydration. We expanded our yearly garden, and have started learning about foraging and herbal medicines as well. I am also an admin, or member of several groups on Facebook dedicated to homesteading, being self sufficient, and improving your DIY skills. I SHARE A LOT of information I find from other bloggers in all of these groups. Learn, teach, 'Do the stuff.'
