Meet Chicko!

If you want to know a bit more about this site, and not so much about Chicko, please visit the "about" page by clicking here

This is Chicko! He is our rooster, the protector and lover of our ladies, the hens. Chicko has made it almost a year in our family, and we love him so much. Thanks to him, we have had 0 hen deaths from predators from around the property this year.

He chases the ladies so they move quickly under a safe spot to keep them away from the sight of eagles, hawks and ravens that love visiting us every day. He lets the ladies eat first and is always watching the flock as to make sure everyone's safe.

He has a little tic on one of his feet, he shakes it every once in a while. Who could judge his neurotic tendencies, having to take care of 5 free spirit hens, all having their own needs. You or I would probably develop some sort of nervousness given this type of job. Nevertheless, he is a great husband to all of them, but he chose one of them to be his inseparable companion. We call her The Wife. She enjoys that title very much.

Since he has such an important role in this story, I've decided to give him a prime spot here. I know he appreciates it. Even though he likes to give me that look whenever I'm trying to draw him or make a picture of him, I love him anyways.
Enjoy Chicko!

Box Cadeau

In an attempt to write an amazing first blog post, I find myself a bit awkward, self centered and super silly. Kinda like when you have a crush on someone you've just met and want to express everything you are, be as authentic as you can and at the same time wanting to show your most beautiful and positive side. It's a complete recipe for awkwardness! at least in my case...

So I'm ditching out all kinds of expectations, and the need of showing off the pretty side, and instead focus on having so-much-fun. Also, the need for perfection (read: pure-fiction) and trying too hard will go out the window.

Box Cadeau is a gift to you that comes wrapped in the box of my life and what I love and learn about it. That box will come full of food, out of the main stream experiences, magic found in nature and more. You'll frequently find other important characters in this story, like my dogs, my chicks, and my partner in crime: Mr.O.

P.S: Pardon the huge crazy chicken face. She desperately requested to appear as the highlight in the debut of this blog. You can't blame her for wanting a little bit of spotlight, can you?
