Have you done anything special to keep your livestock warm this year? I always take extra precautions, especially when the highs are not expected to get above freezing, and the lows are in the single digits (or sub-zero a few nights!). I re-purposed some empty feed bags (never just toss those babies..they have too many good uses!) to wrap my hen house and keep the wind out. I also hung some Christmas lights inside, both for supplemental light, and to add a degree or two of warmth while the girls are on the roost.
Clearly everybody and everything is cold around here. Fortunately however, the critters seem to be tolerating it much better than I am. Do you think if I were to throw a temper tantrum, I could have spring NOW?
Yeah - somehow I knew you were going to say that.
Apparently Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow yesterday, but Beauregard Lee did not. Nothing against you Pennsylvania farmers out there, but I like the Georgia groundhog better.
