    Yes, the shortest day. Least daylight hours...... Chickens spend less time eating, more time sleeping. Forget to lay eggs. (kidding of course).

    For me, I know I'm happier when I have chickens.

    I have become far more tolerant of icky things. Not sure of that's a bad or a good thing..... But when a chicken poops on my shoe (or lap), I check to see if it's a normal one, and if it is, I am happy. No biggie - it wipes off and/or washes out.
