Fun week its been. Rain like you wouldn't believe. Snow. And Christmas.
Hope every ones Xmas went well. Mine was busy as well as the week preceding. I'm sure most of us had a busy week actually. Hope everyone got what they wanted. I still want more chickens.
Fun fact. If you turn the drain stop on the pond it only takes several good rainfalls to fill it.
Drained shortly before my injury, as filling it was only a test run, I couldn't pass up the chance to see how much rain we were really gonna get. And how. The ducks couldn't be happier and I think neither could the rest of us. They can be louder than the roosters early in the a.m. now to just get the rests of the posts set and finish up the fencing. All in due time.
Here's a bit of of the cold I came back up to from the valley from the inlaws Xmas evening.
Clear when I came up and clear today but I'm still leary of another impending storm.
Coops held up as did the tarps, still pouring hot water into the watering dishes or breaking up ice on others.
Another ee started laying as well, certainly another greenish blue egg but definitely different from the original. Haven't got a picture yet. Maybe tomorrow.
Also have some old speakers that are pretty big I'm gonna try and turn into nesting boxes. Maybe pictures of that as well tomorrow if I get off early enough, speaking of brunch i m gonna try and get more pictures of the food I'm doing at work. That being said I need to sleep. Pre dawn is only a few hours away.
Always feel like there's so much to squeeze in when I miss a few days.
More to do and more to post as always.
Just came up on my year marker on byc and getting close on this thread. I'll touch more on that later.
Onwards and upwards
