MMMmmmmmm....can you smell that? That is the smell of my pot roast in the crock pot cooking away all day. That is one good thing about cold weather. One pot warm meals...chicken and dumplings, chili and cornbread, pot roast. What do you like to fix for a warming meal in the winter?
I broke down and turned the heat on yesterday. I couldn't stand it anymore. I was chilled down to the bone. It got down in the thirties here last night so I had to have it on anyway.
The cotton is gone, the wind is brisk, the leaves are falling, the days are growing ever shorter. I guess I have to face it, its fixing to get cold and dark, period. I guess that just makes me appreciate Spring and Summer all the more.
Well, I got two answers about the rooster. One person said that it was rare and he had never actually seen it, but if a chicken tries to vomit the crop may come with it. Then this afternoon I got another response from a man that asked a man he knew that is a Poultry Science teacher and a Poultry Veterinarian. He says that it is a prolapsed esophagus. How this comes about I have no idea, but I did ask him, so we will see what he says.
Its five o'clock, time to go outside and do some things, feed and water some critters, cover some more pens, this and that. See y'all tomorrow.
