We certainly have not had much of a winter so far. There has been minimal snow and few cold days. Nothing to complain about! Sure makes it better for those trying to get hens to lay for those early chicks.

As you will notice in the newsletter, we are soon approaching the start of the show season with the upcoming Winter Show. This is always a nice show and a good time. Hope you can make it out for the day.
