I will start with a photo of my stand at yesterday's Sprout Growers and Maker's Market in Little Falls. Looks pretty good I think - as expected for a holiday market, I had a very good day. Soap does make a good gift.
The market had at least three excellent bread makers. The folks behind me sent me home with a box of bread for the critters. The chickens enjoyed it quite a bit.
They did get up to nosh a bit later. These two are the only ones left now. The other three completed their destiny last Saturday and now reside in a few different freezers. These two are the "little ones" and they will be with us for a couple more weeks I think.
Good news from the coop. Two posts ago I reported that egg production was low. Two eggs a day, then one, and one day none at all! I actually had to buy eggs!
I begged, cajoled, shamed, and threatened...
Finally I caved in and we started turning on the lights at 5:30 AM when we do chores and turning them off again at bedtime - for us that's sometime between 9 and 10 PM. After a couple of weeks of that, they gradually started up again. Yahoo!

Just a couple of weeks now until Christmas - I am not sure if I will get that #2 post out before or after the holiday, but whenever it is, until then, be well friends!
