We warmed up this cold but sunny morning by splitting and sorting firewood, playing with a neighbor’s dog, and scouting out some animal tracks. Here are some tiny bird tracks next to my fingerprint:

And these are some huge bird prints next to my footprints:

And these claw marks are interesting:

Then back inside for a steaming cup of tea and some reading of (library) books on bees, and chickens.

  1. I love the bird prints. And it’s interesting that you’re studying bees and chickens. I’m working on some chicken research myself, and planning how to get our chicken coop ready!

  2. Hi Leigh,
    yes, it seems we are very much on the same track. Which chickens will you get? I want just egg layers with a gentle disposition (for Amie) and some winter hardiness.
