A Winter Check List For Your Chickens

hanging broccoli for chickens

Old man winter will be knocking on our doors soon, so I thought this would be a good time to review some winter strategies for keeping chickens safe and healthy during cold weather.  A winter check list for your chickens…

Water, food, ventilation, dust bathing, outside roosting areas, straw, and deep litter method are part of this check list.

Can Chickens Eat Pumpkin?

Yes, chickens can eat pumpkin.

The orange beauty is packed full of nutrition, including vitamins and antioxidants.

Although there is no scientific evidence to prove that pumpkin can act as a natural de-wormer, many chicken keepers believe this to be true.

Pumpkins are plentiful and reasonably priced this time of year, so why not offer some to your flock.

A Chalk Paint Marathon

I am on a chalk paint marathon!

Let's be honest...chalk paint ain't cheap!

But, WOW is it awesome!!

To me, it's worth the money, especially when I can do more than one project with one quart.

Farm Photo Friday (November 4, 2016)


Yes, according to the calendar it is November.

I don't think LL Farm got the memo...earlier this week the temps were  in the 80's!

The tomatoes seem to be oblivious of the fact that it is November.
They are still hanging on in the garden.

The dill has yet to give up too.

Fall is full of beautiful things, whether it's warm, cool, or rainy.

The leaves turn such gorgeous colors, but don't stay on the trees long before they dance to the ground.
I love to walk on the crunchy leaves.  I usually have at least one cat tagging along.

Mums, pumpkins, and firewood decorate the porch.

I roasted some pumpkin seeds, and the ladies enjoyed the pumpkin.

Have you heard that cows lie down before a rainstorm?
Supposedly they can sense low pressure systems.

They were spot on Thursday...it did rain.
But to curl up like a lap dog?  Funny!  It was just a light rain.
