I'm kind of okay without the snow business for free ranging chickens but...I do like to cross country ski...and last year was a bust. Plus being a tourist area...snow brings in snowmobilers on the weekends and that is a shot in the arm for the winter economy.
Holm good luck deerhunting. Your turkeys and other fowl are gorgeous there. Pretty neat pen of birds. Do you rotate the fence a bit to give them more greens? Or is it buried fencing involved too?
Foxy I don't know what to make of your murdered grouse mystery other than to tell you to knock on some wood and be glad it wasnt one of your birdies. It looks like bird of prey owl or hawk or eagle. They may have dropped it or caught it there, plucked it a bit and then moved on with the goods. IDK.. I think there are a couple scenarios to be had there.
Birds are out loving the free ranging yet. Foggy here today although temps are still up.
Put some chicken poop around my apple trees this morning. See if we can't get those things a-growing good.
Kloppers sorry about the womanly hormone talk. LOL. Sometimes on this particular thread, I suppose you may have to put up with a little bit of that since there are half of us that are gals and the other half Tim the Tool man types. Ar-Ar Ar.
Also I suspect you ladies out number the guys by at least a few, but that's probably a good thing. It brings good perspective to things
