The Weather
We are experiencing early spring. The run off is early by a month. Being in a circle of trees has kept us from loosing the snow as fast as others in the area. Lots of areas have no snow and I still have over a foot of snow! The chickens have been giving 6-9 eggs a day now for a couple of weeks. Not to bad for 11 hens. My neighbor is buying some off me every once and a while. She wants to pay only $2 a dozen when it costs about $3.50 a dozen to raise them, that would be including the eggs my family eats. If I subtract our eggs, I figure somewhere around $3.00 a dozen. The reason the eggs cost so much is the Organic Layer food that I feed compared to the regular feed that everyone else uses. Oh well! I know my chickens are getting good food and what I eat from them is good food.
The coop is needing to be cleaned out and put on the compost pile. My son is griping about going into it to feed or gather the eggs, teenagers!
On the sheep, I felt down in the wool, it feels like they have thrown their fleece already! Usually around April for my area. I need to buy the shears so my husband can shear them instead of paying someone to do it. It is something he use to do on Marthas Vineyard when he was a teenager. Yes that was very many years ago. He wishes now he told his mother he wanted his dads shears that his dad used to shear with. My husband said he would never have wooly beast, that was before he met me. LOL!
Nice sunny day, going out to enjoy it!
