Snow Day

click to enlarge photo I'm going to post this as fast as I can. Three times today the power has gone off in the middle of posting. Snow is still falling, but sun tomorrow? Roads not plowed. Kristine stuck at home. 

   I gave the chickens warm water this morning. I'll give them some more water, more feed and treats.

PS: I warmed up some more water and warmed up some carrot peeling on the wood stove for treats.  Gave the hens some more grain and lay for the second time today. I'll check for eggs later. Chickens are doing OK.

PSS: I went out just before dark and collected two eggs! Very, very cold eggs. And I took a photo of the chickens on the roosts and in the nest boxes. This was the best of the lot.

[2 eggs today]

PSSS: Still snowing. This morning the forecast was for sun tomorrow. Now it says more snow. Hard to know what's going to happen.

Wow that is really pretty. I know there is a down side to the snow. Hope you don't loose electricity. I have heard on the news about California's excess weather. Hope things get better soon.

We haven't had a problem with power outs in a long time. Occasionally in the summer when we have lightning and thunder storms. I "keep" an old kerosene stove in the storage shed in case the ones that run on electricity go out but I don't think I could find it in the mess of the shed anyway. Hope your weather improves.

Your chickens are beautiful! And your Morgan is a cutie!
