This week was all about shoveling snow and stacking wood! I discovered long-unused muscles I never even knew I had. And I just kept saying - who needs to go to the gym when where's so much snow to shovel!
But, seriously, we're loving our first winter in Maine. And the chickens and ducks are being such troopers and doing just fine with no heat in their coop. I haven't even had to plug in the heated water bowls yet - between the sun and black rubber tubs that the ducks play in all day long, the water is staying unfrozen, even in daytime temps in the 20s. The ducks have been laying right through this winter, and a few chickens are even starting up again, due to the slightly longer days. Enjoy this peek at our snowy week!
