Today its been snowing with intermittent freezing rain. This makes it difficult to care for the animals. The pigs don’t mind so much and are out enjoying their food. The goats tend to come out to eat and then go right back inside. The chickens go as far as they can in the paths we’ve made for them and they seem oblivious to the near blizzard conditions we’ve had at times.

On a positive note, we’ve consistently been getting 3 eggs a day now from our chickens. This is nowhere the number we get during the summer. I know the majority of the reason is due to short day lenght and using their energy for warmth. They are,however, appreciating the longer days just as much as everyone here and I expect their production to continue to rise.
