It has been one HELL of a morning. :sigh: Everyone's all pissy and stuff......not sure what's up with that.

Goats: We're getting a little under a gallon a day from our 4. Rosa is basically dried up - we're getting maybe a cup? from her - but I'm keeping her in the rotation in hopes that next year she'll be better.

Chickens: I haven't seen ONE egg since...well, September. They're all slacking, and I'm not sure why. I switched feed to see if that'll help - having to BUY eggs for T-day will surely suck!

Knitting: Washclothes. I can knock one out per day, on my commute. Up to 8, now....still need more. Need to take photos....I've got 2 styles; bias-knit and mitered knit. Both are amusing to work....:grin:

Gotta skitter - running behind!

chickens do go through seasonal cycles and it's totally normal for them to not lay over most of the winter, at least in my experience...

Yeah, but we've NEVER not had eggs, since our hens are all different ages. We've always had at least 3 that lay in the winter...so this is totally bizarre. :sigh: We'll be getting more pullets come April/May....

... our chickens do the same, just pitter off. Right now it's the ducks - I get chicken eggs every day, but the ducks just aren't laying anything at all. They go thru this twice a year, so I'm not worried - it's the light/weather change.
