    Big and Rich are awesome! The whole gigging frogs with my ole bird dog, and we made awesome! John Rich is probably the more well known, but have you heard any of Big Kenny's solo songs? He's pretty good!

    Horses and country music, two subjects I'm a bit lacking in when it comes to knowledge. I'll just post some sprouting pics instead.

    12h soak + 24h in bin

    Goodness! Be careful out there! We ran to coops, fed and water quickly, checked on everyone, gathered the frozen eggs and ran back. If the skin touches the air, it hurts. -5F (-20C) out there now. Not suppose to warm up much at all. They cancelled school, so little girl is home with me again[​IMG]. She is sleeping in today. DH is not. Work for him today. So, I'm off to make breakfast.

    @chickwhispers , Your waterer idea is great! My only issue is that the coop is in the back (3 acres). We have no electricity ran back there other than a little light with extension cords. Maybe this year we can fix that issue.

    Our ground is frozen, even before this last snow fall. I expect to be able to plow it by April if we are lucky.

    @vehve I'm sorry to hear about your poor chook. I hope you are able to swing her back around. Are you getting sugar water in her or something along that lines. Those broody Mommas make us proud and I'm sure it's a tough loss for you and Karen. I hope she makes it.

    Be safe out there winter drivers. We're in for the big chill tonight. Darn weather. Going out with a bang isn't it?

    I hope it's going out....
  6. Awww, that is what Kiwi looked like last week after the blizzard that wasn't. She refused to let me open the back door with the wind whipping and just laid up next to the house. (Of course, I opened the door anyway, to no avail) We had to defrost her coat. I wrapped her in warm towels fresh out of the dryer and she walked around the kitchen with water dripping everywhere.

    Houston, we HAVE sprouts. I repeat, we HAVE sprouts!

    Bog, part of chicken keeping, but it's still sad. She's getting honey water with vitamins. And she's been eating a bit today, but still pretty passive.

    Tnt, we sure do. They've grown during the day too.

    We faced reality and decided not to prolong Virpi's suffering any longer, she's no longer with us.

    Very sorry, Felix!!
    Only thing I can say is at least she is no longer suffering... You gave her a good and happy life...

    And if something is to be learned, break your broodies, or give them eggs to sit immediately, don't wait a few weeks before deciding to put eggs under them. Keeping chickens is a learning experience.
