By now, the Purina 60 Day See the Difference Challenge FLIP Camera is on its way to Mendocino. I have found myself using our FLIP camera to document all of the animals living here at 1840 Farm. It has proven to be an incredible tool for sharing videos of our first goat kids as they grow bigger and stronger every day. I hope that Deborah will be able to use it to share videos of her hens with the rest of us.
This morning, I’m off to tend to our hens. It’s time for their morning oatmeal dressed with kefir to add a little extra protein. While I know that molting will have to run its course, I’m doing all I can to help them get back to providing our farm with fresh eggs. I’ll happily let you know when the day comes that our egg collecting basket is full of eggs again.
In the meantime, I have another opportunity for a lucky reader to win a tool for their chicken keeping toolbox. All who enter will have a chance to win a Boredom Buster as I described in an earlier post to the Community Cluckers Forum. To enter, visit 1840 Farm and subscribe to our blog or follow us on Facebook or Twitter. All subscribers and followers (existing and new) will be entered in the drawing. I will accept entries until Friday, December 16, 2011 at midnight.
One winner will be randomly selected and announced on Facebook, Twitter, and in a future Community Cluckers post. Good luck to all who enter. I hope that your flock will soon be enjoying a boredom buster to help pass the time during the long winter months ahead!
