Is it a day for celebrating? I'm not sure... it's been a cold week here on the farm. Though, not as cold here as other places, thankfully. If the critters can hold out until Saturday, things will be back above freezing again. Until then, there's lots of water hauling and extra feedings on our part, and lots of huddling on their part. 12* degrees is cold here... considering it was nearly 80 last weekend! Brrrr!!
I lost one of my two chicks (they're really "teenagers") last night. Unfortunately. Last night while we were making our farm rounds, I put her on the perch between two fatty hens so she could snuggle into both of them, but either she didn't say there, or it was just too cold for her. Tonight, the remaining chick (teenager) will go into the utility room to share the kennel space with Tiny Tim, Lovey, Little Buddy and Little Lovey, the frizzles that don't have enough feathers to keep them warm in such cold temps.
Hope you're keepin' cozy, where ever you are!
