Vortex Smortex

Currently in Montana it’s a brisk -10°. That’s was today’s high.

This morning it was -25°.

You have to adapt and improvise.

We are happy to report that we managed to stave off major frostbite on the hens, and they are still producing eggs as of this post. January alone they kicked out 168 eggs, or 3.5 dozen a week. The musses found a great pickled egg recipe online if anyone wants it. And she substitutes Apple Cider Vinegar instead because it’s milder.

And also this winter we’ve been feeding the hens oyster shells for calcium, and wheat grass for chlorophyll, which makes their yokes… a pretty sunny yellow, and gives them something green to munch on. 🙂

  1. Unrelated, I just realized we got a new kitty (actually two) and our guy Dixon aka “Mr. Goo” is a tuxedo too and looks like Puss….anyway this can count as your random “crazy cat owner” comment for February 6th. Stay warm!
