Happy Birthday, Minnie, hope it has been a great birthday!
Klopklop, that sounds like genius to me - cant wait to see how your adventure with pigs goes. I like that you are planning the input part and can raise the feed yourself (if I remember right from previous posts).
Does anyone else rearrange the roosting order? With the tiny barred rock bantam and the silkie that came with the other hens this fall, I worry about them and sometimes when I am counting heads at night, I pick them off the roost and pop them in between two friendly fluffy hens for better warmth. So tonight Meep-meep, the bantam, who was all by herself next to an open window, got tucked in between a docile dominque and a drowsy buff orpington.
the silkie, who was also by herself, went between another buff and a fairly placid welsumer.
I just figure these two little ones could use a little help....but part of me thinks the little hens know best and to let them be, but I couldn't resist moving them to what I think are warmer areas.
