Well, well... we went to 81 degrees today, and
now the Old North Wind is blowing, and we are already down to 61.
I have all the windows open, and the house airing out... but we expect a high
of fourty four tomorrow, then back up into balmier weather.
If I remember correctly, we had snow in both April, and on
May 2nd last year, so I am hoping we don't repeat that.
I am so proud of this girl. I don't know whether it's old age... she will be nine this year, or what.... but she is no longer going after every chicken she sees. I DO keep an eye on her, by glancing out the door... but I can trust her outside with the henspa flock loose.
You have no idea of the pleasure I get from seeing the girls and Ferdie and Moe in the yard.
It makes me so happy, and will be one thing I miss.
I found this nest in the 4 x 4 pen in the old henyard this morning.
There were eight duck eggs in it, but I did not know how
fresh any of them were, so I broke them and fed them to the henspa flock.
I know where two or three more are, but can't get to them. That was the one good thing about the ducks being inside two weeks ago, I was able to get pretty clean eggs each morning.
Last week when Chris was here, he helped me clean the flower beds up a little.
The chickens have been helping, too!
Can you even SEE Bitty?
We've been able to fill the duck pond the last several days, and Abby is SO HAPPY about that!
