I guess standing by the coop sharpening my hatchet got the attention of our chickens. They started laying again this past week. We are back to a dozen a day. I suppose we will have to keep them now. I'm not sure 50 tough old hens in the freezer would have been a good thing anyway.

I finished fixing the ends of the greenhouse today. We should be planting in there in the next week. It is lovely to have a warm dry place to work when it is cold and mucky out.

We are finally out of grass. Still searching for some pasture options close by.

You see this is why I fear I may never actually live my rural dream.
How could I kill the uncooperative livestock.
Isn't there some kind of chicken retirement plan?
The old hens would taste terrible anyway.
Now I am going to spend all day worrying about the chooks.
Almost had a huge debate with a metalhead farmboy about the ethics of vegan/vegetarianism yesterday. But then I was rescued by Trinity Rose trying to go down the slide headfirst. I love my daughters!
Why are meat-eaters so defensive about their practices?
