Here Comes the Snow

So far this season we've had very little snow, a small skiff of snow maybe twice.  It started snowing about 3:30 and we are expected to get about 6".  This might be the first time this season we get to use the snow blade on the tractor.  I love plowing the snow but with the way I am feeling I doubt I'll get to do it.  Ron had a half day off today, all day tomorrow and all day Monday.  He had 2 1/2 days to use before next Thursday or would have lost the time.  So with him home he will get the fun plowing.  :(
Someone my daughter Renee knows has 12 chickens he wants to get rid of (they were hatched last Feb) and I am going to get them.  I think there are 10 hens and 2 roosters.  If the roosters cause any problems they will be the first poultry I get to practice culling.  The neat thing is that he lives less than 1/2 mile from us and I pass his house every time I go to the Post Office.  Watch for up coming pictures of the newcomers.

We have just about everything we need to get the turkey coop done except for the siding, roofing and most important some nice weather.  We will use the same siding as the chicken coop and storage shed and stain it to match everything else.  Our out buildings must be the same color as our house and we live in a red brick home so I use red brick staining.

  1. I am surprised you don't stain all the chickens to match, as well.
