About us!

We are Amisadai and Louisa Monger (aged 14 and 11). In 2010, we moved to Tanzania in Africa - look at the map below to see if you can find it! We hope you will enjoy reading about our adventures and looking at our photos! Please don't forget to send us a message too!

We are excited about getting chickens when we are in Tanzania! For our birthday our friends have "given" us chickens which we will hopefully get when we have a house! Every friend who gave us a chicken named it for us. Here are their names!

Amisadai's Chickens
Happy (Alice)
Chicken Licken (Jessica P)
Rosie (Emily H.)
Hollie (Hollie A.)
Mia (Mia)
We can't find Amy Miles's chicken ... can you remember, Amy?

Louisa's Chickens
Chuckles (Megan)
Minnie (Rebecca)
Chickle-Millie (Christopher)
Mary (Emily)
R2-D2 (Sebastien)

Thanks, everyone! That's a lot of chickens!! We'll see if we can get this many! And we'll make sure you get to see a photo of them!

Louisa would like to say she would like a goat as well! (Mum is not so sure!)

Thank you everyone who has signed up to our blog! It is really fun!

We thought we would add a new Swahili word with every post ... today's word is kuku. Find out what it means on our Swahili page!


  1. Those are really cool names (especially R2 D2)! I looked after my Aunty's chickens in England last year. It was really fun looking after chickens, especially finding the eggs! Guess what? when I looked after the chickens I dated the eggs and I named the chickens too! Polly and Holly were my favorites. The 'teenage' chickens wouldn't go to bed! One would go up into the roost and the others would follow and then one would come down and they'd all follow that one out! They like to play 'follow my leader'! Love from Naomi x x

    Hi Amisadai and Louisa
    Those are really great names! Maria especially likes the name Rosie. She wants to have a sister named Rosie one day and in the meantime names a lot of her stuffed animals Rosie.
    Maria and Esther's Oma had chickens for a little while as well. One was a fancy one and Maria named that one Roadrunner. And one was named Kip. Kip means chicken in Dutch.

    Esther says "We had chickens, too. But we ate them all" I'm not sure she would remember Oma's chickens, though.
    are you getting laying chikens?
    Maria and Esther.
