      lol... couple of problem... first, I'm not trying to roast the chickens alive... they have a bale of staw in the bottom of each of the houses... fire and straw is a bad mix..... Second.. I have no roosters.... so no fun for the ladies.... besides, I'm not a big fan of surprises in the eggs... lol

      • fertilised eggs are supposed to be easier to digest or something like that. I always kept a roo with my chooks for their social order but I only had 12 or so chooks including the roo.

          I have heard that as well.... I have a problem with roos for a couple of reasons. The first is they are noisy as hell! The ones we have had NEVER stopped crowing... bastages! The other main reason is that they are aggressive, and with small grandkids around, I really don't want them being attacked by a roo.... I have had a roo come after me... and I ain't no petitie thing...

          • I found the aggressiveness depended on the breed. we've had some incredibly well mannered roos who were like feathering teddy bears. we've also had mean and nasty roos. it does make it easier to bump them off and eat them. my teddy bear roos all died of old age.

              There certainly is much truth to that... and I guess I have gotten only the nasty breeds. Some breeds are naturally nervous, others very calm and docile...

                Monday... gray, cloudy day that started out in the 60's when I let the birds out to temps in the 40's about 5 hours later. No exercise to speak of. I did pull some meat out of the freezer. A chuck roast, some thick pork chops, chicken, and a package of polish sausage.

                This past weekend the wife made some braised chinese cabbage..... which was pretty tasty. When I got up tonight, I boiled the sausage for my lunch, and put half of it (about 5 ounces) in with some sauerkraut I made. The other half I ate for breakfast with some braised cabbage and kabocha squash. Finished breakfast off with a couple of handfulls of dates.... Lunch will be a BAS, polish sausage and sauerkraut and an apple.

                Today is gonna be interesting...... the temp is currently 22... with the wind, it feels like it's 7. The low temp tonight is supposed to be 12..... the high today is supposed to be in the low 20's... but sunny and breezy...... It's gonna be hll trying to keep the chickens water fro freezing. May have to put the waterers in the houses to keep them a little warmer....
                Food sounds good. You got freeze the balls of a billiard table temperatures, and we got enough rain to make Noah worried, don't ya just love winter....

                  The term we used in the Navy is "Cold enough to freeze the balls off of a brass monkey"... apparently it goes back to the days of sail... Love winter, especially with all this Global Warming going on!

                  Ah, I'm fair accomplished at cooking and eating them as well!

                    Quick goggle found this;
                    Some references say that the brass triangles that supported stacks of iron cannon-balls on sailing ships were called monkeys and that in cold weather the metal contracted, causing the balls to fall off
                    Though there might be some doubt to it's credulity....There's always the old pawnbrokers sign as well....

                    I can well imagine with what you put in the freezer a few months back....

                      yup... that would be the reference to which I was refering....

                      • Yup... Got home... all of the chicken waterers were frozen. Fortunately they were not full, so I could pour in hot water and melt the ice. I left one outside for a while, and went back to check it out... it was starting to freeze.... More hot agua, and put inside the house... hope it stays thawed....

                        On the way home the radio station was talking about favorite soups..... so I came home and cut up part of a chuck roast, browned it, added carrots, celery, turnips, bell pepper, onions in some beef broth.... added cumin, sage, salt, pepper, garlic, and it is simmering on the stove.... will add some bok choy a little later Looking forward to my dinner....
