Spent 30 minutes buttoning up the farm today in anticipation of the freezing precipitation and COLD weather we are expecting. The heat lamp involved in the coop fire was inspected and replaced.
The layer crumbles we use have gotten some heat lately because Purina, who makes it, switched from paper bags ( compostable) to poly bags ( not so much). Instead of adding to the waste stream Jenifer and I have been saving them.
Today I put them to good use as windblocks. I stuffed them in every crack and open gap in the drafty goat shed and covered the doorway with them. The goat shed is now ready for the -12 degree night on wed.
