Lights in the Dark
The long nights are closing in and the lights for the chickens and ducks are all on keeping them up to scratch and squawk and eat earlier in the morning and later into the night. They have gotten the hint and have begun laying closer to normal and with the weather not being so cold there are plenty of eggs for this Friday's delivery. Stop by the Fireman's Park parking lot from 12-1230pm this Friday, Dec 6th to get some farm fresh rainbow chicken eggs and duck eggs! I'll have some microgreens as well.
I'll also be in Troy this Saturday, Dec 7th at the 4-H Christmas Bazaar. Come see all the great gifts everyone will have available! It's at the Morrison Elementary School, 9am-4pm. I'll have everlasting wreaths, hand-crocheted bowls, handwoven scarves, hair barrettes, and more!
The hens have gotten used to their lights and take advantage of the extra time to eat and run around. Their 'stomachs' are small and they need to eat little but often so the long nights of winter makes them ravenous, but keeping their 'daytime' a little longer helps them keep their bellies full and them to stay warm on cold nights.
Some of the everlasting wreaths that will be available this Saturday in Troy. All are made with flowers dried and grown on the farm and greenery collected and dried from the edges of the fields. If kept out of direct sunlight and away from rough treatment like kitty claws they will last for as long as you want!
