My gosh, they predicted 50 mile an hour winds, and I think we have them! Even Lilly wanted to be in today, and I don't blame her.
I can't believe the chickens went out and stayed out most of the day!
We continue to be very satisfied with the shadecloth over the henspa yard. It is really standing up, despite billowing in the wind today.
Even the geese were having trouble keeping up!
The girls were busy laying in both henhouses.
And I've found a black hen twice on the feed room side of the henspa... there is a gap in the chicken wire up above... now I see why she is coming over! We can't use these eggs, though I think one is from today... so we'll hard boil them and give them to the dogs or the birds.
Here is the flat feeder out in the garden, and as you see, there is lots of wasted seed under it... though the ground feeders eat out here daily. Seed blows off, or they knock it off, or it gets wet and I clean it off. I'll rake this up in another few weeks.
Look what I found under it 30 minutes ago:
Yee ha!!!!! Those are sunflower seeds sprouting!
And here, under Oscar's tree.... daffodils!
We've both seen lots of robins these last few days... can it be that spring is almost here???
We heard from Keith's sister Kim this afternoon... she and her husband, Duke, live in Wallingford, Connecticut, and Wallingford was featured on the news last night for the amount of snow received... some 32 inches! They had power and were fine, but are very, very tired of shoveling. We thought of them yesterday, and all those dealing with the weather this weekend... we hope they all make it through safely.
As it is, there has just been a huge burst of wind here, so I'm going to end this and go look out and make sure things are still okay.
That's it for today from Calamity Acres!
