New Year and eggs January 8, 2011

Well, it has been one heck to the new year for us here at the farm. Way too much snow and then rain and then more snow. This is the most snow we have seen since moving too TN 5 years ago.

Poor chickens are locked up in coop once again. Now going on 4 days straight. We have over 6 inches of snow on the ground. It is a real pain getting to coop to feed and water the chickens. Can not wait till we get back deck in so it is not so hard to get to coop. As of now I have to walk down hill on muddy grass or icy grass. Being very careful as I slipped already out front of front steps when they were wet. Took care of them with some stick on grit pads. Wider than the ones used for tubs.

On a good note chickens are laying more now. Now that days are slowly getting longer some more hens have kicked in. We are getting anywhere from 3 to 6 eggs a day now. Before they were locked up they even had a outside nest on west side of house that our dog showed to hubby. She is such a good dog. Wouid never have known it was there for I am never over on that side of house.

I am not sure when chickens will get out again as we have another snow storm coming. At this rate I will need snow shoes. Dog loves it all she wants to do it get snowballs thrown at her. Wish I could stay out to play but I caught chest cold right after newyears day after I feel. Here wishing everyone a safe and propspeous new year. Keep warm all.

Do you know where to purchase non gmo corn scratch and or cornmeal in Greenville Tn? I was told there is a mill in Greenville Tn that sells non gmo corn. I live in Rogersville TN have 27 chickens and would love to feed non gmo corn.
thank you
