We have about two more weeks before we get a new flock of baby chickens. We're going to be out almost a month so that has given Popa a chance to make things ready for the cold weather ahead. Of course that makes a long time between pay days. Today we have a crew on the farm putting a foam material in the ridge and along the foundation of the two older houses, hoping to block cold air from coming in. Not only will that make the chickens more comfortable, but it will help to keep from using so much fuel for the heaters.
Two days ago this semi-load of propane was delivered; do the math for that, and you can see why we're trying to save fuel!
While I'm on "vacation", the spider web quilt gets a little more done on it each day. I may just forget how to raise chickens ;).
