    We got fractions of an inch. Enough to make it all white here. The sun is shining so i suspect we will see dirt again today. The chickens walked out in it for a minute, decided it was not interesting and went back inside :)

    I went in my woodshop this AM for chicken water and it was still 40 degrees in there! not sure how it is retaining THAT much heat from my 100 degree fire yesterday.

    I picked 36 eggs yesterday and picked 18 this AM while doing chores. usually my girls don't mind me reaching under and taking their eggs. now that it is cold they are starting to get fussy if i try to peek! good thing I was wearing gloves :)

    If i end up with real gamey venison i grind it with bacon ends and pieces plus a few spices to make breakfast sausage. It is excellent. I've got the recipe around here somewhere... it is sage based and goes well with eggs

    i was up at 8:30 (yes i call that sleeping in) but my rule is that i have to do chores before i come on here or else it gets put off.... i had to clean and fill waterers, turn my deep litter and add shavings, scoop over due poop boards and haul it all out to the garden and spread it.

    From today on i will be scraping the poop boards daily. the longer you wait, the worse the job gets. and that isnt even taking the moisture issue into account!
