more of the same…of the same. Sort of. I just don’t really know what to talk about. The winds are still visiting us. They are taking their toll on the animals, on some of the infrastructure, the house, and the humans. The winds have been steady since Sunday now; gusting up into the high 40’s. Ripped the wind screen right off of the doves’ enclosure, we replaced it this morning. The gutters are coming off of the deck – but we don’t dare get any one up on a ladder right now to reinforce it. We’re hoping that the morning will provide us with at least enough time to get a ladder up and fix it.

Sue has been chomping at the bit because she wants to get out and work on the new chicken tractor so we can get the chicks on the pasture as soon as they are all feathered out. It’s just been too windy to do any work it. Today, she decided to work on in spite of the wind… it worked for a while, but then even she had to give up. It’s supposed to stop by 8:00 p.m., but right now – at 7:46 p.m. – there is no sign of it letting up. Please keep us in your prayers.

Not sure what to talk about next. Everyone is just kind of hunkered down. The chickens aren’t really laying right now, well – there’s been a drop in the egg count anyway. Not sure what else there is to say today.  We’ll  keep you posted as we minimize damages. Until then, as always~
Thanks for reading!

Egg report: We’ve been having some really nice numbers lately, but, as I mentioned the numbers have gone down a bit the last couple of days. Here’s the report: Tuesday – 35 chicken, 2 duck, zero goose. Wednesday – 29 chicken, zero duck, zero goose.

IMG_0613Cool thing: Haven’t had one of these for a while now. One of our friends and customers, Janet, sent me this photo this evening. She and her family have been customers for a while now. I can always county on them to take duck eggs whenever we have a surplus.  She confessed, today, that she has become an egg nut; having them for breakfast lunch and dinner. The photo is of dinner: it is a sweet potato and beet hash, topped with two duck eggs. Yum!
