Cluck, Cluck

I suppose you are all wondering how the chickens of the Farm are faring with the cold and snow we have had. Well, being the nice goat that I am I will tell you.  They have their nice little chicken house that the male person built for them; he is a handy guy! To keep them nice and toasty and to keep their water thawed he put a heat lamp in there for them. Isn't he nice?



 When the publicist gives us our water in the morning she checks for eggs.  Looks like she found some!



I think that hen looks quite comfortable, don't you?



So you can see that just like us goats, the chickens of the Farm are quite well cared for no matter the weather.

Tomorrow: It's AbbyDay. Beware....

Our friend at Octoberfarm is having another wonderful Christmas giveaway! You should go over and check it out. She gives away wonderful and tasty presents.

  3. Do you have to leave the lamp on all of the time to keep them warm? I don't know a thing about chickens either. She looks happy though.

  4. That is one fine-looking chicken house! I am so impressed with the male person's building ability. Glad to hear that the chickens are keeping warm this winter. Nothing worse than frozen eggs.

  7. We're going to have to switch out our water container pretty soon, I think. We use a big metal waterer during the warm weather, but switch to a smaller rubber container that can be emptied of ice easily and filled with fresh water once or twice a day as needed.

  8. Do the chickens make fewer eggs in the cold weather? Forgive me if this is a dumb question, but I know nothing about chickens and their egg-laying habits!

  9. I would imagine all animals would be happy on your farm since they would be so well cared for.

    Do the eggs freeze?

    I think they are as spoiled as us goats!
