January Total — 61
February Total — 220
It’s amazing what more daylight does. I can’t wait to see what happens in March! I hope I will be reporting some chicks. I have been checking whether or not our eggs are fertile as I cook them. We have 2 roosters for 18 hens and only half (or less) of our eggs have been fertile (bulls-eye). I don’t understand what’s going on.
I was able to clean out the coop and spread it on the future sweet potato patch the day before we got more snow this week. The day before the snowfall, it got up to 45 degrees and you would have thought it was 60! We were outside all afternoon, soaking up the sun!
We got 6″ of snow the next day. We are now in mud.(5yo eating snow. Pruned blueberry bushes all around)
I know I am not alone, looking forward to spring (greens)!
It looks like we may be out of 20 and 30 degree days. I am hoping to plant some seeds this week (and cover them). Once I start planting, I need to revamp the chicken run — can’t let the chickens free range when there are seeds/plants in the ground!
