Greetings from the North Woods where we seem to be stuck in Sprinter – no snow but not quite warm enough yet. This post, however, is about all things Spring.
Easter time at Winterberry Farm featured the annual egg hunt in the woods. As you can see from the photos, there was still some snow on the ground at the edge of the field. Every year, I have the job of hiding the plastic, treat-filled eggs, and every year I seem to forget exactly how many my wife gave me to hide. Oh well, the forest creatures find them eventually and enjoy a little sugar fix. This year, my 2nd oldest granddaughter was the champion egg hunter. Moving forward a bit, 8 chicks arrived last week. Hopefully, in about a months time, they will be ready to join Brown Betty and the Amish Hen in the chicken coop. With 10 layers, I think the egg production should be enough to feed us and the growing grandkids.
I just recently moved the chicken coop closer to my wife’s garden beds, and within a week I saw a fox checking out my hens. Well, that is just not acceptable for the PeeMan! If you have chickens, you know how valuable they are. One of the uses of our 100% Predatorpee is to keep predators away from your precious hens. 100% WolfPee will keep the foxes away from Brown Betty, the new chicks, and your hens as well. Don’t just take my word for it – backyard chicken officianado The Chicken-Chick also recommends our product for hen protection.
I hope your hens are safe and Spring is in full bloom wherever you are.
Until I find more words. . .The PeeMan
