Short Post - Chickens and frozen eggs

HI, this one's pretty short for me but here it goes, speed blogging!
Chickens have settled in, and have continued laying. The tricky part is getting the eggs BEFORE they freeze solid. We've managed to get 1 in the house so far, but you've got to remember that our high for the past 3 days was yesterday's 10 above. The windchills have been anywhere from 20 to 40 BELOW zero.

Speaking of cold, we had a calf jump in the water tank on Sunday. We tried to warm him up but were unsuccessful. We tried, but it still sucks to loose one.

The cows and horses are doing well in this icy tundra. The mares haven't come up to eat any hay. They enjoy digging and foraging, or they must, because there is good hay for them up by the barn.

Well, off to go shopping and see santa. My sister's going to watch the munchkins while I finish up with the stocking stuffers.

Merry Christmas!!!


  1. You can still use the eggs if there isn't any poo on them-just let them thaw. I wouldn't recommend it if they really gushed, but if they are just hard and have hairline cracks, they should be fine.

  2. Just wanted to drop by and wish you a Merry Christmas! Stay warm!
