    Stranger Than Fiction?
    While I’ve always been amazed at the level of intelligence most of the Homestead critters have demonstrated from time to time, the claim has never been made that they could actually read.
    However, after writing last week of the possibility that the “girls” (hens-Fuzzy, Blackie, and Anita) might start laying eggs this winter since they now have the late and lovely SnowWhite Goose’s nightlight for heat, we have found four nice eggs on four consecutive days in their pen.

    Singing in the Homestead Hen House
    In spite of the cold, one-digit temperature weather, snow, strong winds and zero egg production, the “girls” – Blackie, Fuzzy and Anita – are still singing…as early as 6 o’clock in the morning!
    Since Bill put a nightlight in their quarters to help warm the air, they seem to be feeling pretty chipper.
    I wonder if a higher-wattage bulb would bring fishing worms to the surface and maybe give a jump-start to egg production again?
