|Rosie the Breast Cancer Awareness Chicken|
I met Rosie this past Summer at her new "Chicken Plaza" and asked Eileen to give me Rosie's story. She is a beautiful 9-year-old Americauna chicken who spent most of her life as a Montessori school garden chicken where she was loved, held, hugged and fed by 60 plus children. She free ranged in an organic garden. Well past her prime laying years, she spent this past Summer in Eileen's son, Trevor's loving care and she started laying eggs again. She hadn't laid eggs at school for several years. Since she appeared to love her Summer home, the Montessori outdoor teacher decided to make Chicken Plaza her permanent retirement home. So, Rosie is happily retired. Her new students at Chicken Plaza are six, 5-month-old chicks, just learning how to nest and lay under her matriarchal guidance.

In honor of Rosie and women with Breast Cancer, I will be donating 20% of my Etsy sales through my stores, Creations by JDB and Fuffalumps, excluding custom orders, to Unite for Her throughout the month of October. Unite for Her is an organization I learned about through my Sister in Law, Alison Donley, who owns The Light Within yoga studio. Alison and her daughter, Rachel, help by educating women about the healing benefits of Yoga and Reiki.
