Goodbye To More Chickens

Over the weekend a friend came and got more of our chickens. They wanted the 4 Polish Buff Lace and decided to take a Black Copper Maran hen and rooster.

Eventually, maybe in the spring, we’ll get some quail from them and we’ll try raising a few of those. 

In the past ten days or so, we’ve gotten rid of 16 chickens and have probably 10 more to get rid of and we’ll be at a more reasonable number of chickens!

 

Snow in Central Texas

In these parts, it’s way more common to get ice than to get snow but we’re getting a pretty good little flurry right now.

When we first moved to Kentucky, I would get so excited with the first snow. Vince was used to seeing snow and he couldn’t understand my excitement with it. When we left MO, I thought I would be happy to never see snow again but it’s still exciting to see it. Without a doubt, it will be just a dusting and will be gone by mid-day tomorrow but it’s still exciting to see.

Brrrr!

Some of you worry about me when I don’t post on the blog at least daily so here’s a heads up that we may lose internet.

We get our internet via a mini tower on top of our house and once the tower freezes over, it’s goodbye internet! Hopefully, i fit happens, it will be short and I’ll be back soon so . . if I’m too quiet for a day or so, you’ll know I’m sitting and knitting with no interruptions.

I’m doing the stash report and a few blog posts ahead but I won’t be able to respond to email or anything  . .  if we lose the internet.
