Cold today, 37 when I went out to do chores... and still only 42 at 4:54. The wind is blowing, and it feels MUCH colder.
I moved things around in the big henhouse, and put a light on Nugget and her babies.
They were grateful.
This is the first of the babies, the strongest. It is a week old now, and honestly, I don't think the eggs left under her have a hope of hatching.
I did make sure all three chicks were alive, and moving around... the third was out and drank and ate a bit. I'm sure it was very cold. It felt the heat from the lamp and froze and stood and let the heat beat down on it.
The henyards are a mess, and it's slick in there, but cold or not, the hens rushed out this morning.
You can see the pasture has greened up nicely.
Our mower would not start two days ago, so Keith is going to charge it tonight. We have not used it since the end of August last year... I may have left the headlamp on or something else stupid, and ran the battery down. Then again, we may just need a battery.
It's too wet right now to cut, but I hope to get started in the next few days or we're going to need a Bush Hog in here!
I'll take the time to rake, too... and give all the grass to both pens of chickens to go through.
What the hey????
This shot up since Sunday... it's in the pea bed, but could it be a PEA? That far up in two days?
Somehow I don't think so.
The sump pump in our well is working overtime again, since the water table is so high.
The sump keeps the well house pumped out so that Keith can go down and change the filter for the house water from time to time.
He still has to wear his wet boots to do it.
Abby loves to play in the water.
And that's it for another soggy day at Calamity Acres!
