    no they think its a great idea when they lived there back probably 20 years ago they had a farm with chickens. so they totally understand. im not quite sure where they were from but I'll find out. they gave you a lot of credit for traveling back and forth they said that man is quite dedicated. im trying to get them to get some chicks at their home here but im not sure ive quite convinced them yet but telling them your story has really sparked their intrest

    show them a picture of my "bahay kubo" coop. It should spark them up and get them talking

    A Bahay Kubo is a Nipa Hut - the traditional Filipino House.

    There is a song that my kids sing and then point to all the fruits and veggies in the market

    Filipino Version

    Bahay Kubo


    Bahay Kubo kahit munti

    Ang Halaman doon ay sari sari.
    Singkamas at talong,
    Sigarilyas at mane,
    Sitaw bataw patani,

    Kundol patola, upo’t kalabasa,

    At saka may’ron pang labasnos, mustasa.
    Sibuyas, kamatis, bawang at luya.
    Sa paligidligid nito’y panay na linga.

    English Version


    Nipa hut


    My nipa hut, although it’s small

    The plants are diverse
    Turnips and eggplants,
    Winged beans and peanuts,
    String beans, edible pots, lima beans,

    White melon, gourd, white pumpkin and squash,

    And still there are more, radish, mustard,
    Onions, tomatoes, garlic and ginger,
    All around are lush sesame plants.

    Nipa hut is the basic Filipino architectural type of house. It’s commonly found in the northern part of the Philippines, the roof is made from woven coconut husks or nipa leaves while the walls are made of bamboo and other natural materials that is commonly found in the forest. Some bahay kubo are made of bamboo stilts in order to protect from wild animals. Communal space is very important in the Filipino families, to be surrounded by the people all the time regardless of all the chaos. The Children may be playing around, Lolas or Grand Mother playing cards and Titas or Aunties chismising (gossiping) but these are common and comforting, thus Filipinos have a fear of being alone.

    I'm wondering what the neighbors think? Are you like the infamous chicken mogul? Has Bernie enlisted his cousins to patrol the grounds from chicken poachers?
