Hey friends! What has everyone been up to?! We’ve been in overdrive lately between work, family, and starting our spring prep. Most of our farm tasks have been getting done after work which means after dark, so we sadly haven’t had a chance to photograph our projects or our furry and feathered friends a whole lot. I’ve got the elusive day off today, but we are in the midst of non-stop cold rain, so I’ll be catching up on various indoor tasks while simultaneously trying to collect eggs before they all get covered in mud 🥚.
This egg is from one of our marans hens, who despite being less than a year old have proven to be quite inconsistent layers. So, in attempts to remedy that problem, we ordered some more! 😬 They were originally supposed to arrive to us last week, but because of unexpected events requiring us to travel out of state, we had to reschedule our shipment to the first week of May. Shout out to the kind folks at @cacklehatchery for being so understanding and allowing us to reschedule our shipment free of charge due to the extenuating circumstances. However, we are still expecting the arrival of our cream legbar, welsummer, and easter egger chicks this week from @meyer_hatchery 🐥🙌🏻. I got the brooder all set up and did a temperature trial run last night and it held steady between 95-100 degrees F so we are ready!! Spring is so close!
