My favorite farm animal

My favorite farm animal is poultry bird. These virtuous creatures are not only beautiful but also have vital nutritional and socio-economic values.

Poultry birds may be broilers and layers or local birds. Their colour makes them very attractive. Majorly, poultry birds produce meat and eggs which avail us with quality and cheap proteins. Feathers used in textile industry are also their remarkable product.

Poultry birds lay and hatch their eggs after three weeks. I cherish the care and affection of mother chicken as they feed, defend and provide warmth for their helpless chicks. Modern poultry farm creates better environment where birds receive quality feed, constantly kept warmth and secured.

Poultry production and management is Capital affordable. It is a source of employment for most poor farmers all over the world. Poultry farm waste might be disgusting. However, proper sanitation and compost recycle can be useful cleansing measure. Poultry birds are seldom killed by disease infestation, but proper care, sanitation and vaccination can ameliorate the condition. Culturally and religiously, poultry farming is tolerated.

In conclusion, my favorite farm animal is colourful and beautiful couple with the beauty of care and affection to their young. Poultry birds have agricultural, nutritional and socio-economic values.

Shining stars

The beauty of the universe is super amazing. Each gaze on my natural surrounding make me marvel at the splendor of things I could see. Right there above the sky lay the bright stars. In the night they shine their bright and golden light.

The sun and moon are giant bodies that gives light and energy to the earth. But, the tiny light of the stars is unique. Stars are too numerous that it can take eternity to number them. Shining so bright above the sky yet giving it’s little illumination to the earth when the moon fails to give light.

Do you think you like the stars?

Research is a fun when followed with passion. There is pleasure in making a new idea out of one’s exploration. Although, talent is a necessity in the web, tool is quite indispensable.

Google is a powerful search engine. Amazing research and discovery are made on daily basis in this super app. Ranging from professional, scientific to personal quest. It’s very easy to access the Google, but, yet I had been on a serious desire to create my own blog page. Honestly, it wasn’t a fair tour. However, my inquisitiveness was satisfied when I discovered WORDPRESS!
