  • Poultry care during winter: Chickens don’t freeze

    Winter is here, and the temperature has dropped significantly. This time of the year, I will usually receive a few questions about poultry care during freezing temperatures.
    During winter months, don’t worry about how cold it is because poultry are designed to withstand the cold. Their feathers offer plenty of heat and insulation to keep them warm, but things you should worry about are clean, thawed water, plenty of feed, good ventilation, lighting and flock safety.
    In my eyes, the largest threat to poultry during the winter is lack of fresh, thawed water.

  • This 4-H service project was for the birds

    This past week Natural Resources and Pinterest clubs joined together to create a service project for Henry County. The youth wanted to do something for the wildlife during the winter months.
    The youth first learned about the different kinds of seeds in commercial birdseeds, including their nutritional value and which birds would eat the seeds.
    The favorite of many birds are the black-oil sunflower seeds. This seed has a thin shell making it easy for many birds to enjoy.

    These results suggest that holiday weight gain may be an important contributor to the rising prevalence of obesity.
    Yes, holiday meals are often more generous when it comes to solid fats and added sugars, but they don’t have to be. In fact, there are lots of great recipes out there that still taste indulgent without actually piling on the calories.

    But the Warriors went on one big run in the game and it happened to come at the end.
