I made this film nearly ten years ago and it was immediately struck with a copyright notice on YouTube. The music 'China Wave' is in the public domain and I so wanted to use this beautiful theme for my film because the history of the Cochin breed of poultry and the way they came to the West and the aftermath of 'The Cochin Craze' or 'Hen Fever' is a dark one; involving tea, silver, bloody wars, looting and above all, opium. I wrote an article about this topic here if you are interested: https://holistic-hen.blogspot.com/2018/02/the-cochin-craze-story-of-addiction.html#.YPrY9rpvaV5 I wrote to the artist Yuanji Chen, who created this haunting piece and they told me they'd never even heard of the small UK music Company that was claiming copyright on the work. Hope you enjoy the film and that you will also check out Yuanji's haunting contemporary piece here: https://archive.org/details/China-wave..

This film concerns my 3rd and 4th generation of meal worms; how I ditched plastic for wood and also initial musings on (and filming of) grain mites.

This film details my first attempts at raising meal worms organically, mainly for my quail. Since then I have carried on with my experiment and found that just like my birds, meal worms thrive in a forest garden environment. The next film in this series, which shows the progression of my meal worm 'farm', will be posted uniquely to BitChute but I thought I'd upload this one first by way of an introduction.

This is the first part of a three part film taking you through the first few days of life of the baby quail with their mother bantam Ardenner, Polly, sharing information I have gleaned over the 15 years I have been observing these delightful birds. The written version is here: http://holistic-hen.blogspot.fr/2012/...​ I began raising organic quail to obtain quality eggs with which to treat Andy's hay fever and eczema, which they did and very quickly. I still keep quail today, they are part of our garden, living in our greenhouses and coldframes keeping down insect pests, just enjoying life and laying delicious eggs. This is one of my older films but I am having such trouble with uploading to BitChute re upload speeds that I'm having to rely on my older and non HD videos.

Once the ducklings were well-fed and stable on their feet, it was time to introduce them to their real mother, in the hope that she would except them and they her. I was also wary of both these mother ducks, as unlike my own birds they were far from tame or to put it another way, rather savage! I also didn't forget about Pearl, right from the beginning of this rescue, I had prepared a consolation prize as it would have been too cruel to expect Pearl to hatch these ducklings and then be left with nothing at the end of all her hard word.

Two mother ducks siting on separate nests in the same house, with both clutches of eggs set to hatch on the same day. One clutch hatches in the night and both mothers go out in the morning with the ducklings, leaving the other eggs just at point of hatch.... Pearl the Cochin to the rescue.

"Wise men n'er sit and wail their woes, But presently prevent the ways to wail." I left work and the town behind me in 2000 to start an organic homestead/smallholding from a ruined house and abandoned field in rural France. I'm sharing my experiences on raising organic poultry (chickens, quail and fantail pigeons) in a food forest garden and on how we are trying to do our bit to remedy centuries of abuse to our home planet. I also have sites with written articles on raising poultry:
