I am not sure where the time went since I last posted. I finished up technical job that took more effort than I planned but was also more fun than I imagined. It had a hard deadline and so my focus was pretty narrow. I have now run the job back to employer, and I am done with that job. I don’t have another one right now so and I am catching up on some things that got put aside one of them my blog.
Excuses given my major news is that I did get chicks this week. RangerSir and I agreed that we bring in a few every year and this year did not have a good reason for not doing so. I got all Wyandottes, one of my favorite breeds. I love them because they lay well, they come in assorted colors and designs, when they are done laying they can be sent to freezer camp, and they have a cushion comb which is really nice during a Montana Winter. I only got six, which is our optimum flock size. I got two blue laced reds, two golden laced, and to silver laced. Right now they are in a brooder under the lights in the garage.
This is the first time they have not spent the first two or three weeks in a brooder in the house, but enough is enough. We are finding it more of a challenge than we had figured on to keep them warm and keep them confined. This two will pass and each week will get better.
