Well my Dad is still in the hospital. Complications due to age, congestive heart failure, emphazima, Parkinson's Disease, and a urinary tract infection are keeping him from being moved to a medical care facility for physical therapy. And tonight he was moved to the Intensive Care Unit. He will get better treatment there and constant monitoring.
Then there is my DAUGHTER who is keeping me on my toes.
And finally a frozen septic system. Are all occupying my time and mind. Staying worn out mentally and physically seems to be my fate for now. BLACK IRISH LUCK don't ya know!!!
I have had time to butcher a couple of rabbits (1 for me to prepare at a future time when I can PLAN a meal. And 1 for Ang to try.) I had planned on doing this at an earlier date, but somehow never got around to it. The other day there was some fighting between 2 of my bucks so I eliminated both of them, leaving me with 1 male and 3 females. I hope I only need the 1 buck.
We lost one hen earlier in the winter but so far the rest seem to be doing ok, other than a few barebacked hens. The very cold weather has slowed down egg production some but not too bad. Out of 20 hens we get on average a dozen one day and a dozen and a half the next. The warm spell we have had the last couple of days has created another problem....WATER.
It is running into the chicken coop which sits in a low spot, so this summer I will have to do some landscaping to prevent this problem next year. So far the water hasn't reached the chicken's pen yet. But it is supposed to be close to 60 degrees tomorrow and rain.
So wish me luck, and I will try to catch up soon.
Thank you for all of the prayers and well wishes for my Dad and Daughter;
