    Thank you, he's a good boy, except for torturing the chickens. :rolleyes: Good to know the frostbite will clear up! I didn't know that! Doesn't seem to bother her in the least.

    Thank you. Great ideas! DH will help with whatever I ask him. I'm going to look into it, I've only ever grown greenbeans!

    What did you do in the garden today?

    One of my girls has a bit of frostbite I think. She has the biggest comb and has a few black spots about the size of a pen tip. Assuming frostbite, it was in the single digits most of the week.

    What did you do in the garden today?

    I, like @Acre4Me, use a section of fence for vining plants just held up with a tpost. I planted onions throughout the garden to help with pests, some dont seem to like onions. I love to see all the garden plans! My garden is probably going to be drastically different this year as I'm facing...

    Absolutely helpful! Appreciate it! & no I hadn't mentioned Brahmas but I will look into them. I'm always open to suggestions since I'm a chicken noob!

    What did you do in the garden today?

    That is true, I didn't mention it, but it is a bit of a concern. In CT we do get a good few days over 90 but I have a pretty good set up for them, they are under trees in full shade all day & I have a fan in the coop. Plus I make ice for them & tray of water, etc if it's really bad. But yes...

    Thank you @Acre4Me & @Wee Farmer Sarah ! I think I'm probably overthinking it anyway. Lol @TropicalBabies if he's anything like mine he would never notice. & If he did it would be too late anyway. Lol!

    What did you do in the garden today?

    Oh, I wanted to see if anyone had any opinions on my choice of chicks for spring - I've decided on Buff Orpingtons & Golden Laced Wyandottes. I want layers that can handle the cold/snow & something that has a chance of going broody & will be able to be integrated with my red sex links...

    What did you do in the garden today?

    Morning. Smells like snow out there! I got the chickens a flock block yesterday, I think they're enjoying it but aren't obsessed. I forgot to water my lime tree & its mad so it dropped all it's leaves, lol. It can't wait for spring! Have a great day all & I LOVE all the pics. Especially...

    What did you do in the garden today?

    I did onions last summer & loved having them because they had a much better flavor & were more potent than store bought but you are right @Wee Farmer Sarah I can't ever possibly grow enough! I planted garlic in the fall & I'm sure that will be the same. I asked friends about asparagus & they...

    Dust allergy and coops

    Wow, that stinks. I would for sure see a doc about that. I have lots of allergies so I have always tried to wear an N95 mask when I work with the chickens. Then my sisters boss spent 4 days in the hospital with Psittacosis (bird pneumonia) from cleaning the coop. It's important to be cautious...

    What did you do in the garden today?

    Hi gardeners! I need to catch up, but nothing happening in the garden except the seed catalogs are coming in. I got about a 30 foot piece of apron down on what will be the new chicken run in the spring. Glad that's done. Been planning the kitchen remodel, I'm going with a wood countertop...

    What did you do in the garden today?

    I put an N95 mask in the shed so I have no excuses! @Wee Farmer Sarah I had pneumonia once too when I was 20 something, I was down for a month and ended up with scaring in my lungs and asthma from it! I NEVER want that again! You're like me, I'm on 3 allergy meds year round, allergic to life!

    What did you do in the garden today?

    So my sister's boss had been super sick, ended up in the hospital for 4 days when they announced that the infectious disease team was coming in to see him. They thought he had pneumonia but had spots in both lungs, apparently that's unusual. So they start asking him if he has animals, they...

    What did you do in the garden today?

    Morning all. A big warm up today, hopefully the ice will melt! I had to put straw down in the chicken tunnel and saved up leaves & scratch in the run to tempt the girls to even come out. They just kept slipping everywhere. It sure does, I have 2 more planned for the spring! DH wants more but...

    What did you do in the garden today?

    Part of the reason I talked DH into chickens was the poop for compost, little did I know I'd need a lot more chickens to even make a dent!
