Welsh Harlequins..my favorite!
Woo! I think my lone survivor from NYE is an OE cockerel(Ameraucana comb and white legs of marans) . Oh the potential...I can see many EE/OE and BCM/OE mixes in the future do you like green eggs and ham?
Mine are about as far from mean as possible. A couple of them are lap turkeys. One in particular never misses a chance to sit on my lap.
Why yes..yes I do!
These are the first eggs after a couple months off and they've been out free ranging during nice weather this week, so that probably contributes. Otherwise they are on layer pellets, some cracked corn, mix of safflower and sunflower seeds, and any leftovers I have available, peelings, etc. The scrambled eggs are neon dayglow highlighter yellow, lol.
Yesterday was gorgeous (for Wisconsin), hit around 45 or 50 most of the snow melted. Was out cleaning the coop in shorts and a jacket. Just lovely. Last night it snowed again and I hear we're to hit -5 this week as a bitter cold front moves in. The girls have been ramping up in egg number every day during this warm streak, got 11 today (out of 16 or so hens). Guess we'll be back to feeding in the coop again this week. Snowing on and off.
Our temps are dropping, too! The beautiful weekend weather was gone this morning and we had a dusting of snow. I was worried the girls might think the nice weather meant they should consider sitting, but this change should signal them to hold off on being broody for a while.......for about three weeks should be about right!
LOL, convenient timing right there, huh?
Showing my California-ness, but at 45-50 degrees, I'm in pants and a sweatshirt..........not shorts. Anything below 65 and it's COLD.
We went to Wyoming at the end of May once. We were wrapped up in full winter down jackets like we were going to die of hypothermia at any second. That wind just goes right through you. We went into town to go to dinner and the locals were in shorts and t-shirts. Ummm, yeah, we stuck out a tad bit.
