I am busy working on building content and creating videos for youtube. I am able to see my passion and ideas unfold in a direction of expansion and creativity. Although my time is being swallowed by my professional career and educational aspirations, I am continuing to make strides towards defining preparedness and sustainability in my life. Here in lies one of the greatest challenges, and that is defining the role a new task or a hobby will play in our lives. We all know that taking more control over our food sovereignty and reconnecting with that which produces the food that is put into our mouths, yet a wall exists between taking that step into responsibility and being blissfully ignorant.
In order to get more people to buy into the mentality of sustainability they must see how their efforts can make an impact, yet not be so much effort that their way of life changes too much. Not that total change would be unwanted, it's that the effort should not outweigh the change factor.
I have decided to try quail again, for egg and meat production. Yes, this is where I take that step into processing my own meat from the BackYard. This may be the hardest decision, but I feel that it is time, and I have reached that point mentally that I want to take the responsibility for the protein my family eats into my hands. Although it may not supply all of our needs, I want to be the one that raises and humanely dispatches our food. This way it can be done properly with respect and in the most sustainable way.
Here is a video of the quail and chickens just hatched:
