Snow is Coming…

We could be in for it this time!  The weather report says 8 inches at 4,000 feet and 1-2 feet at 5,000.  Let’s hope their right, the problem is the weather man is almost always wrong.  I’m expecting about a foot of snow, it’s cold and it feels like it’s going snow and hard.

Which leads me to my other problem(s).  We now have a cat, 2 dogs and 12 chickens, which are only 8-days old.  I can’t believe how much they have grown.  Yet, they still are so small.  I’ve been having a time with the dogs and the cat.  They get so excited, when I let them out to see the birds, that they try to scratch under the pen.  But, realistically they are pretty good — all things considered.

I get a quite a work out, cleaning the pen and providing fresh food and water.  It’s fun but I’m much more careful with these birds than I ever was, when we had or farm and raised chickens. The biggest challenge in going to be keeping them warm with all this snow coming.  I have two infrared lights (I am not even going to thing about what that’s doing to our electric bill.

I know that it will be worth it in the end.  We will love having eggs and fresh chicken but I sure am tired.  Bundle up, stay warm.  I’ll keep you posted if not here, on Facebook, join us.
