raising chickens biodynamically

i am on the hunt for literature on chickens written by a person who actually understands chickens, not just by someone who has raised them. meaning, someone who can , for lack of a better word, communicate with them. i know that certain people can truly understand animals/insects/plants on a spiritual level and that is what i am looking for but am having hard time. was hoping someone here is 'that' person or know's where to find said literature.

nature spirts during winter

i was curious how plants grow indoors or in greenhouses during winter months if all the nature spirits (gnomes, sylphs, etc) are tucked away in the ground? my understanding is that plants cannot grow without the spirits. so do some of the nature spirits not get to dwell in the ground and almost have to be available year round? if so how does this affect them? would it be like us not sleeping at night and working for 24 hrs straight?
i have always wondered this just haven't got around to asking.

understanding powdery mildew

i desperately would like to understand powdery mildew from a biodynamic perspective. all of the information on the internet seems geared at what fungicide to use, and differing opinions on how PM lives and works. of coarse all from a materialistic view.
