Winter Life Hack ….When grilling outside in the snow leave the burners turned on and shut off the propane at the tank. That way the knobs on the grill will freeze opened not closed and you will not have to thaw them before you startup you grill.
Sun came out. So I checked in on the chickens. They were out for a little to see the sun, but it is still too cold. The fashion victim who does not want to pose for the camera is sporting a tail cover my wife made to keep the others from pecking at her.
They are actually laying well we are averaging 8 eggs a day out of 7 chickens. Seems a little strange for this time of year, but this is my first winter with them. My son has adopted the rabbit living under my deck and is “accidentally” spilling feed outside the coop each time he goes to feed the chickens. Good kid
Shoveled out some trails for the chickens today, but they only came out for food it’s still really cold the heat lamp in the coop has not turned off in the last 3 days.
