Good morning all
Hope the white stuff helps more than it hurts.

I have fed the owl again, poult without a head,neck and breast. I have one that will go in with mom, the rest will not listen when she calls them. 3 left from that bunch. 2 died suddenly, 3 to owls and 5 to coons.
I have 5 from an earlier hatches, 2 from the next hatch that the coons got 5 after I sold a bunch. Those seem to be big enough to be ignored so far.
11 from August that I have been able to get in the coop.

Chickens are stressed, the owl has been eating about 5 ft from a coop. Between that and molting only one hen is laying in that coop.

DH and I slept pretty well las night (bar waking up to roll over or pee every couple of hours for me).

Thing 2 was not happy about not having me last night and it took him until 11pm to fall asleep. He slept until 5 and then decided it was time to get up. My mom woke at 3am but couldn't get back to sleep. Thing 1 got up at 4am saying it was time to get up (like he's been doing all last week with us) but went back to sleep. It wasn't a horrible night for my mom but it wasn't great. She's probably still napping now.

So, we found out that Thing 3 is another boy. We don't have to get a whole new wardrobe. We're just happy we're having a healthy baby. And I get to keep the guest room for a few more years.

Good morning everyone. :frow

Ok I am awake(ish).

Super cold here. We got about 14" of the white rain. Birds are ok. Crooky looks cold. The sun came out sort of so.maybe that will help her.

I hope everyone gets to have a great day.
:frow Good morning Henny, have a great day and stay warm. Hope the snow helped with the fires...
Morning all:frow

I’ll take some white stuff, but not on the roads and it has to stay over weekends. :)
:frow Good morning Fishy, have a great day
