First look at our latest homestead arrivals. One of our ewes had 3 healthy babies on a nice warm day as opposed to the normal freezing temps of the past. We are so grateful for the warm weather as are they. In the past we have lost many a lamb or goat to the freezing Spring weather and it isn't even Spring here yet. February 15th.
We researched what breed of chickens would do best in a grand solar minimum and the general consensus was the Silver Laced Wyandotte. They are the champs when it comes to laying during cold dark days. It happens that they are also beautiful and smart. I don't say a word during the video because at this age they are very skiddish. Here they are in there intermediate house and cage after their original 3' x 4' brooding box and before their present yard and house.
