Well it's already 9 days out -- time for cootie retreating. Everybody is looking really good though! Crazy how good. I'll get 'er done though and maybe even a third on Roger since he had them so bad. Will check. And then a dreadful coop clean out...in the middle of a snow storm apparently. Of Course.
I think I'll sprinkle Sevin in the corners none the less. or in the shavings.
Ralphie: Sorry to hear about the Turkeys beating up Bert and Girls. It's no fun when there's a lack of harmony in the flock. That's when those tough decisions get made. I think That's been happening on farms for a good many years when you think about it. Isn't it? Somebody gets sold or turned into lunch.
My Little BA has her sneezes back in this colder weather. She is feisty though and when I bring the Boss and Scratch. She comes out of the run into the snow and walks with me like a puppy dog and -- in front of me too! She's SO friendly and healthy otherwise. Smart as a tack. I just have a hard time finding a reason for whacking her for the sneezing. I guess I'll just have to keep an eye on her overall health and make a tough decision with her this spring if there's no eggs or what have you. Gosh I like her though.
So 9 degrees outside this AM and the thermometer with the 150 watt flat panel and sparkly bubble wrap Reflectix. Coop was at 25 degrees. Poop frozen on the ground. I have cracks open in the windows for venting still. IDK...I think I'm okay with this stuff. It was about -5 last night for low temps. The whole winter is an experiment though I've decided. Since it's such a weird one.
They are predicting 5 inches of snow, here tonight and tomorrow.
Yeah. A person forgets about all the equipment you need just to keep things looking good and keeping your road open...etc, etc. She definitely needs a John Deere mower/tractor and she may as well get the snow blower attachment. And of course the .22. Looking at those beautiful buildings in that nice piece of country she'll have critters wanting at those birds.
