So, my families big Christmas get together is finally over, and I am back home, where it’s still sort of Christmas and now we’re looking forward to New year’s eve.
It’s colder now, and while the snow didn’t stay on the ground for long while we were at the west coast, back here at the east coast we’ve got quite some snow.
The snow makes the landscape beautiful, because it stays on the trees and bushes as well and makes the nights lighter.
The dogs love being out in the snow, but the hens don’t really see the point. The four white Italians come out for max an hour, but the Sussex rooster and the Danish hens stay inside all the time. We’ve given them a lot of straw and fodder, and make sure their water doesn’t freeze, so they’re happy. They also still lay eggs – about 4 each day – so I guess they’re fine.
