The sun has been a rare commodity around here for the past few weeks. There has been plenty of snow, rain, wind, and just plain gloominess – but little sunshine. This means the chickens and guineas either spend their time in the coop or under it. The only place to put their food to keep it dry is under the coop itself.
No sun means no eggs. Everyone still looks healthy but a bit of sunshine and some waste hay from the goats would really make everyone feel a whole lot better. One of the goals for next year will to either put in a new coop or a covered area. We shall see, in the mean time lets hope this streak of cloudiness comes to an end soon.
