Eggs, chicks, traps and mushrooms, all in a days work.

Bushcraft encompasses a range of outdoor and wilderness living skills and is very closely related to homesteading and self sufficiency. Here my children are checking the progress of some quail eggs in the incubator.
 
After seventeen days in the incubator the chicks start hatching

They are soon out and about under the heat lamps.

Checking a larsen trap to reduce predation of wild bird eggs and chicks by magpies and crows.

A little bit of mushroom foraging, in this case St. Georges mushrooms.

Delicious.
