Cold Temps 😨

We have been in a cold spell for the past couple days and have discovered that the water is freezing, even under a heat lamp.  With the new place we weren’t sure how much winterizing we would need to do to the barn.  The previous owners said they didn’t have a problem but I wonder with having more animals in the barn it added some extra heat.

We ended up making a late night run to grab a heated waterer.  The poor chickens, when I brought out water for them they were drinking so much they were almost dunking their heads in the pan.

Our frozen pan.


Our new pan.  So far so good.


We also discovered our water pump also froze.  We are trying this to see if it works.


I have to admit I really do enjoy coming home and chatting with the girls.  How can you not smile when you see this face


This is Kenai.

I am a school administrator by day and a new hobby farmer by night. My family consists of my husband, a farmer boy at heart, and myself, a city girl learning the ropes, along with our two children. We are excited to embark on this new adventure.
