I know, a lot of you have much colder temperatures for longer periods of time, but we've been spoiled so far this winter!
Not any more...
This morning it felt like it was below zero, with the wind. Hearing the wind blow at night is an unsettling feeling. We drained water lines, but still...you don't know exactly what might be frozen in the morning. Thankfully the wind had died down some 'til morning, and there were no major problems. I had frozen water buckets at the hutches and in the chicken pen, but that's to be expected.
Last night we put the insulated coats on the hutch calves. Doesn't she look toasty?
We are anticipating the first snow storm of the winter here this weekend. There are lots of mixed opinions on what might happen...and what folks are excited about happening....or not.
Me? I'm ready for spring!
