I want a job like the weather folk..they just give it their best guess and everyone listens!
We were to have a light snow with milder temps, we got wind ,,cold wind and temps that hovered in the high 30's. Tomorrow is to be "milder"..ahh winter..gotta wonder what is next!
I did not even take the tarp down around Blue Boy's hutch..it was comfy in there for him, no need to let him put up with all that cold whistling thru his area.
When I went down to close up the girls..well they were all in but 4 and they seemed almost glad to be shoo'd into the house! I glanced in to count heads ..yep all there. I have one tiny little hen , she's a pretty lil girl ,,white with black accents on her feathers. Well she was puffed up like a huge ballon trying to be warm with the cold air coming in their small door. As soon as I closed the door she began to "deflate" and resume her normal size. I bet tomorrow I just feed in the house as the wind is to be bad again.
The geese came looking for me when I did not go straight down to close them up first. It is funny they will come out like a parade all lined up. Then when they saw me they turn around and parade back to their area, with Jack honking the entire way.
Now a lovely fire going and a quiet night coming up. Tomorrow is town for groceries and other odds and ends to do , maybe a little shopping.
Have a restful night all, keep warm!
