Woowee I'm tired. I was out doing chicken stuff for 2 hours today. I know that's nothing compared to what some of you guys do. We have 15 inches here. I measured today. I don't really know if that's an accurate though, I live on top of a really windy hill. Which makes things colder in winter.
Anyway. The wire divider came out of the coop today, since everyone can mingle peacefully with the newbies now. They even sleep on the same roost. I did a huge clean out and sprayed some organic cleaner I made for the coop that I found on Pinterest. It's pinned on my "Useful DIYs" board. The roosts, floors, shelf, etc. all got wiped down. The normal things got done too like new water and food.
In other news. Don't you just love it when your "friends" of 10 years hate you and then embarass you in public and be nothing but rude? Yeah me too! And it's not a little fight that will pass either. It's something I can never forgive. Especially when you don't have any other really close friends... So that's why I've been telling you guys all about my days for the last week or so.
Oh no. So sorry hon. Don't let it consume you. Give yourself time to cool off and forgive, then....move on. This world is chock full of fun, trustworthy people who know how to be kind and are deserving of your friendship. Invest yourself in people like that. Until then, hang with us, we all appreciate you...plus....we speak 'chicken'.
This is why I love you guys Thanks Blarney.
I forgot to say, I just started seeds
I planted half of an egg carton of basil seeds. I figured it'd be nice to have a few basil plants in early spring to be able to harvest from. They need to grow *checks every hour for a sprout*. Just kidding. I'll water in a few days and check for sprouts in about a week.
We have three left. I am a believer and will be processing the whole bed this year. I will be
making frozen cubes tof other herbs to. How convenient and fresh tasty.

I'm going to make herb oils too!! I'll do everything. Dry and crush/add to feed, dry for cooking, freeze in cubes, etc. I can't wait!!!
Question.... how do you get the oils from the herbs?
There's a link.
