day 2 this new year
i went to feed, it is 21 degrees and the warm water was appreciated by the poultry.i had a surprise i saw one green egg laying by the gray tote that the chickens some times use as a nest.I looked under the tote and found 2 more green eggs and one brown egg. They were real cold but not frozen . I had just not looked under that tote for a few days.
one of the red hens escaped when I opened the gate but the hens are easier to get back in then the guineas. Thank goodness I wasn't prepared to chase fowl this morning. the rooster crowed again this morning so I suppose he has found his voice.
