4 Things Your Chickens Need This Winter...and 3 Things They Don't

October 17, 2017


While it seems natural to worry about your chickens in the winter, they're actually far more comfortable in the cold than you might imagine.

Take a Peek at my Week - Oct 8th-14th

Busy week this week! We spent two days filming another episode of my TV show Fresh Eggs Daily with Lisa Steele. You can watch it on the CW in the Portland Maine viewing area( WPME/WPXT) or streaming online HERE. I always love days when the film crew is here. It's so much fun, but totally exhausting at the same time!
