Hello from snowy cold Iowa.
Here it is starting the 3rd week of January and I’m
just now getting here.
I just put the chickens to bed, made some popcorn and all cozy
to get here and share a little.
My days have been full and usually by now I’ve called it a night.
I’m pushing on a bit so can get here to share.
How is life going for you and how’s weather in your area?
I’ve lost track of how much snow we’ve had here and how
much snow I’ve pushed.
There isn’t any work that is happening outside the last couple
days though. It’s been blizzard conditions and this morning woke
to -40 with wind chill.
I’ve had plenty of warnings of the roller coaster ride has just began
with the weather. And not because of any global warming. That’s

I’m glad he hadn’t been to get his hair cut yet and had some protection
from the cold.
He also isn’t used to potty pads and took him awhile to use them.
He thought he’d be in trouble if didn’t go out so just kept reassuring
him and loving on him.
The chickens have adjusted to being inside and we have a routine
I’ve been giving them lots of greens, sprouting lentils and red winter
wheat for them. In addition, I’ve been making them different treat
blocks and suet treats. I’ve heard it said a few times that ‘Chickens
can be like pigs with wings’.
That fits my five chickens to the T. They love to eat and have their
preference for treats over food so I have to keep a balance with
Speaking of routine I need to get back to sharing more regularly.
So many things I want to share and don’t get it done.
I hope you all have the best night.
Stay safe, stay warm and keep preparing one step at a time.
