This is what I woke up to this morning! That stupid weather man said rain yesterday, turning to snow last night, then back to rain by this morning! Well, we got plenty of wind and rain yesterday, and there were a few tiny flurries when I went to bed. WITN-TV here in Greenville said we would get a trace to one inch. We got about three inches! Everything is covered in white! (This pic is from the last snow, but it pretty much looks the same). I thought I'd wake up to a few slushy spots, as the rain would have melted most of it, but no way! Roads to work weren't too bad as temps are hovering above freezing and rising. Slush in most places. But I am done with the snow! We are expecting temps to be up to 66F by Sunday. That's what I'm talking about. PLEASE! I'm begging now!
I didn't eat dinner last night. It wasn't because of what Mike cooked. I wasn't surprised when he told me. He's been talking about it for a week now. I had just gotten quite nauseous. I felt like vomiting...but I didn't. Mike killed and cleaned those four RI Red/Buff mixed roosters. They were only doing some minor sparring (no blood) and never messed with Little Chicken, who is twice their size. They were only six months old. They were, however, tormenting the hens with their raging hormones. And without any eggs, fertile or unfertile, they were just using up valuable food. So they got cleaned and put on the grill last night for dinner. I will have to try them for leftovers this evening. I've never eaten any of my own chickens. So I'll see how they taste. I still have a white silkie rooster that needs a new home. Maybe I'll put him in the Bragain Trader to see if I can find a good home for him. I actually have two white silkie roosters to go, but I haven't decided on one yet. He's with a mixed bantam hen. I'm trying to get her to sit on eggs. She's got 8 or 9 now, so we will see.
I still haven't figured out the giveaway yet. Not feeling well last night, I was just laying on the couch all evening. But I promise that it's coming this week.
