Blue Laced Red Wyandotte
Blue Laced Red.....again...I kinda like these guys.
The chicks seem like they will be toasty warm. Besides the heat lamp, they also have about 4 bags of pine shavings in their coop, which, if you have ever opened a compressed bag of pine shavings you know that there is the equivalent of about two trees in there that comes bursting out of the bag.
I added a heat lamp in with the ewes too. Trillium is showing some signs that I might be in for another long night, so I put her in a jug, just to be on the safe side, and strung a heat lamp up above in case the temps get really low and I have wet lambs to deal with.
I am worried about my apple trees too. They have not quite flowered yet, but they are really close and if we get much below 30 degrees I may end up losing some or most of my crop this year. Last year after the trees had blossomed we had a very hard freeze, it was about 19 degrees for a day or two and I lost my entire apple and pear crop for the year.
It is supposed to warm up later this week....I can't wait. We still have the barn doors on the roof of the barn
Hopefully next week things will be back on track and the lambs will be out on nice pasture in the bright sunshine.
