After yesterday’s Springlike conditions, the blustery winds that greeted us this morning seemed especially harsh. But that is New England. New Englanders are so used to constantly changing weather that there are generally two possible responses to good weather. One is, “..well, we deserve it…” The other is, “…we’ll pay for this no doubt..” Sometimes you get both responses. But we do have changing weather and climate change has only made the changes more extreme.
In any case, blustery, cold weather has returned. Much to Merlin’s delight, the stove is lit.
While they were all cozy, enjoying their morning, I made some oatmeal for the girls.
I didn’t even open the coop door. I know they won’t go out if the wind is blowing too hard so why let the cold air into the coop?
These feathers are collecting in the corner.Prudence is molting now. That leaves only Brianna laying. Beatrix is still molting. Amber has finished molting but she is not laying. She didn’t lay last winter so maybe it is too cold and dark for her. She has a point.
