Each evening after dinner, it is Toby’s job to take the scraps down to the chook pen, feed them a can of grain, and collect the eggs. He loves to help around the farm, but being four, there aren’t many jobs he can do all on his own. I followed him down with the camera one evening so that he could show me what he does. I was given the full run down on the ‘proper’ way to feed chickens and collect eggs. He was so proud to be able to tell me what he does, and I loved watching him work independently to finish his job. When he grows up he wants to be a farmer. Of course this will probably change, but he certainly loves life here on the farm.
