Chicken Keeping Through The Winter (The Natural Way)

Some things never change.  People have been keeping chickens for years.
Some things do change, such as the way people keep chickens.
Did you know that, generally speaking, chickens have a natural way of keeping warm?  Chickens can actually handle the cold of winter better than the heat of summer?
In my recent post for Community Chickens, we look at some similarities and changes over the years.  Back in the good 'ole days and today, many choose to raise chickens the natural way.  
Topics in this article include breeds, housing, keeping warm, and lighting.

It is so easy, you can make it while you sleep.
Seriously!

It's up to you if you want to dream about it, but rest assured...

...in the morning your nose will thank you as the delicious smell will be making magic in your kitchen.

...and later, when you cook with the homemade goodness, your taste buds will definitely thank you.

Top 10 Posts From 2016

Top posts from 2016...

I've been seeing this a lot in blogland, so I thought it would be neat to see what YOU, my readers, have been interested in.

I have been blogging for two years, but I don't have just one topic, per say...

I post about a variety of things that interest me (and hopefully interest you too):

cooking
gardening
farm to table
decorating
diy
homesteading
chickens

When going through my statistics I found that many of you are interested in the recipes that I post.

Believe me when I say that I don't consider myself a prized chef in any way!
In fact, I have a few funny stories about my early days of cooking.

What I am, is just like you - a home cook.
Cooking is universal - it's a way to show love to others.

I enjoy cooking for my family and friends.

I love creating farm to table meals that nourish the soul.

And, come on ...who doesn't enjoy a good dessert recipe?

But the top 10 that you chose were not just recipes.
So with out further ado, I give you LL Farm's top 10 posts from 2016:

Farm Photo Friday - Snow (January 6, 2017)


Snow fell most of the day yesterday, leaving a winter wonderland just begging to pose for some pictures.


As I did my morning farm chores, I just couldn't contain myself...

I love the beauty that snow creates.

Grab something warm to drink as I take you around the farmstead this morning.

Spinach Salad with Lime Dressing


Don't you just love this time of year, and all the delicious food that accompanies the season?

I'm not just talking about the cookies and pies that seem to appear at every corner...

It's also the time of year that my cooking turns to comfort food...




But, sometimes, a lighter meal is wanted.
...and definitely needed (so says my scales)!

The First Snow of the Season at LL Farm


The first snow of the season has come and gone.

It was beautiful!



The cold (single digits) and wind delayed school for a couple days.


I knew this round of snow would not last for long, so I snapped some pictures.

I hope you find them mesmerizing!
