27f. Has the world gone mad? These are temps I'm supposed to read about other places and laugh. I'd better make some HOT coffee this morning. (Who am I kidding? I'm not going out there! I don't own that many clothes).
It’s 4* here. I’m keeping the animals in. I’m waiting to do my chores till around 9...maybe it’ll be 6*? we got about 24-15”of snow in the last three days...with ice mixed in there so you have to be very careful how you walk, and walking out to the barn, you fall through that thick crust. Makes carry buckets of water, not fun.... The tank isnt frozen, it’s the valve handle...it’s plastic so we can’t take the torch to it... So, I carry many, many buckets. On the upside, our egg production is wayyyy up! Now we just need people to start buying. We have two regular customers, but we need some more, now that we’re getting 20 a day..and that number will just rise with 35 hens, once the pullets are a little older. We’re in the money
