Well I got the flooding situation corrected with a well placed ditch filled with gravel. Last week the hatchery sent 53 new chicks. Half of these are Delaware and half are New Hampshires. I guess we will try to eat some of them. Tonight will be cold and we are breaking out the heaters and heat lamps. I hope to have them raised and laying by the fall and therefore have more egg production. We had a coyote attack 2 weeks ago and I lost one of my grown hens. This time of year the pups come in and the coyotes ar every aggressive!I have broccoli, lettuce, arugla, and onions planted as well. Looking forward to spring and the summer to come.
