Sometimes being a homeschool mom means doing some... well, lets say... strange things. I'm teaching a co-op class for our homeschool group called Amazing Mummies. We started last week. We talked about the different kinds of mummies and then focused on man-made mummies and the mummifying process. We are mummifying two Cornish hens; Nefertweety and Tutancluck.
So now I have two chicken's mummifying in my basement.
I had to change the salt today and was worried about how it was going to smell. But it wasn't too bad...
smelled like... chicken:)
You can see that the chickens are drying out nicely by the darkish color. Next week's class we'll be making barbie/doll mummies while our little chicken friends here keep mummifying.
