    Boss? What's that? Snow???? What's that? My poor hens live in semi desert. 110 day, 65 night in summer, but winter does get and stay cold by our standards with open air ventilated coops. I don't have grit, but our soil here is DG. Decomposed granite. Little pebbily rocks and granules. Hope that's enough.

    now hay does loose nutrients as it gets older. If kept covered and dry !! It looses most of the goodies that it is going to loose the first year.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] $15.00/bale for #2, $18.00/bale for orchard or timothy. No H20 for crops and gas prices. Still over $3./gal here. Was $4.89. I HATE this state.

    Snow is white frozen rain that falls from the sky to put people in the Christmas spirit and then drive them nutz for the next 3 to 5 months. [​IMG]

    Boss is just black sunflower seeds, tried to share a picture of our winter snow, but of course photo upload is not working again. What you have for soil is perfect for grit. But yikes, you can have your temps. I think I would even suffer snow over your climate. Lol
