The Morning Show and the evening news
The rest of the day was yet another opportunity to exercise flexibility. I was pushing Brian through his schoolwork before homeschool co-op when I got a text followed by an email that co-op had been cancelled due to an issue at the facility we use. So rather than a trip to McMinnville for co-op and assorted errands, we took a late-afternoon trip to Salem for these:
Our ten aging hens have given us a grand total of THREE eggs this month. :-/ Last weekend Rick mentioned getting some chicks at the farm store, but pouring four to five months of food and labor into them before they start producing just doesn't appeal to me. I've thought about hunting down some pullets; thought became action when a Speckled Sussex hen died yesterday. I found the above girls on the Oregon Homesteaders Classifieds Facebook page, and the cancelled co-op allowed our schedules to mesh for pick-up. Here's hoping they integrate quickly, and turn out to be good layers!
