So happy to see those Daffodil's reaching for the sun! The forecast for the next 10 days; High 60's and no freezing night temp's! I took the heated water buckets out and stored them away until next winter...a sure sign of better days ahead! We had a great day yesterday...finally finished butchering the remainder of our rogue roosters! Last 5 went into the fridge, and will be turning them into soup this week. We have definitely gotten quite proficient with "processing" these guys. Even though we are able to hatch our own, we went ahead and ordered about 30 more chicks. Thirteen layers from a hatchery, and from a breeder, additional Wyandottes to boost up our breeding flock. With the longer days, the horses and goats are really starting to shed their coats, and they are loving rolling around to itch. Of course, they are such muddy boys! Also, going through my seed packets. Want to get carrots, beets and salad greens in the ground this week. I saw some potatoes at the feed store last week. Definitely want to get them planted in the "potato can" and see how that goes. We have a poulty show this weekend and goat shows just 8 weeks away! The resting days of winter are officially behind us!
Spring is on it's way!
