With the weather so cold Friday and Saturday my water source for the cattle stock tank froze. Nothing like filling 5 gallon pails in the bathtub and hauling them out like a thousand times. Today the line is fixed, WHEW! While I don't mind hauling buckets I REALLY did not want to spend the rest of the winter doing it. I am not a youngin like I used to be.
I managed to find a way to alleviate my problem of abundant eggs. My BIL brings them to work with him and sells them to his coworkers. So far I have off loaded 22 dozen with the future looking bright.
No calves yet. But I am so excited for them to come!!!
Bogtown-sorry to hear your lovelies are dealing with mites!! Hope things turn around soon! How do you rid the coop of them?
So many things I have started for my spring to do list. The chickens run is one of them. I will make it bigger with sections instead of one huge one. It is tore up beyond belief. Not sure it can recover. Maybe I can let the chickens range with the cattle this summer. I like the idea but I want my eggs in the coop not spread all over the pasture!
Have a good day all!
that is the best way! DW and I both sell at work, plus my MIL and DWs aunt takes orders from their coworkers. We have never had a 'too many egg' issue :) We started selling in July and have sold almost 300 dozen eggs since!
