Chilly start to the month
Brr, it is getting cold outside. I probably wouldn't think about it so much except I get home from work about 6pm and it's dark out. Then I have to go in, feed the Beagle and change into my outdoor muddy chicken clothes. I got some new Bogs that I love and they keep my feet warm and dry. Anyways, back to chicken chores. I have the new chicks separated from the old chicks while they're adjusting to each other and establishing the pecking order. So I go outside and let them all run around if there's still daylight, fill the two feeders, fill the two frozen waterers, gather the eggs and kick a couple broody's out of the nesting box, put more shavings down and secure everything back up. It will be good after this weekend, when I can hopefully get the heated waterer plugged in and make all the chicks live together in sweet peaceful harmony. I do love having them and getting fresh eggs any day I want. But tonight I made chili and cornbread which is such a wonderful winter comfort food. Now to work on some sewing for my Etsy shop and for the Christmas Sale at the Jones Greenhouse.
