Chickens are dying again
I went out to lock the chickens up and did a head count. Only 46 chickens roosting in the coop and I had to chase out the mother cat and her five babies out of one of the nest boxes. Sarah later informed me that there was a chicken carcass in the yard. I am not sure who is doing the killing. On a positive note, I did get the wheat truck running and drove it over to get the last 80 bales of hay loaded. No one was around so I hoofed it the two miles home. If the weather will hold for another 3-4 weeks I may be able to get the upper fence completed. Here is to surface frost only and no deep freeze.
