Chris HeidenIt's been a while since I posted something. We have been busy with chores and improvements around the homestead. When I last posted it was winter time – snow and cold up here in Michigan.

The winter was a bit less stressful on the chickens. The 2014/2015 winter season was not as bad as the previous season. Our chickens got outside and were able to make a path to the outdoor hoop coop. We had to make sure the chickens had plenty of fresh water and food to keep healthy. They kept up egg production to 18 eggs a day, which was pretty significant. We have 40 hens and four roosters.
