Goodness everyone is so busy with holiday stuff ! FeatherPugs you are an inspiration to me because you are so brave. Sounds as if you are feeling better.
I like the idea of that heater, so easy to make and I have the pieces to make one. Have repaired lamps in the past. But I am in the habit of boiling water in the kettle to bring out for the flock. Got three eggs yesterday from fourteen hens some of which are still molting.
happy holidays to everyone
Awwww thanks!! I do feel better just have no stamina. I work things in 15 minute pieces - then usually sit for 15 to 30 minutes!! Makes what I'm doing slow but it gets done!! Took me all day to put up the Christmas tree..... Had to break ice a few times during the cold - don't think it'll be the last. I'm only getting 3 to 7 eggs from 25 hens. And molt - some have had the hardest molt I've seen in a long time - I wish I knew something to make it easier - I feel so bad for them. I'm going to buy some pullets come spring if there are any available. I need to make the flock a bit younger! Not sure I want to raise chicks this year - too many possible variables with my health.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!
