Who knew that Missouri winters would be so stinkin’ cold? Probably a lot of people, but I had no clue. When we were deciding where we wanted to settle down and homestead, we had narrowed it down to two choices: Maine or Missouri. Missouri won out because as much as I love, love, love a good snow storm, I am not particularly fond of six months of winter.
I want my chickens to be happy and I’m pretty sure you want your’s happy too. Warm chickens are happy chickens and happy chickens are laying chickens. And that is what we want isn’t it? Laying hens?
