First day of winter and the village of Franklin took on a distinctly wintry look and feel. The cloud cleared to a lovely sunny day, but there was still a damp chill in the air. Most of the leaves have fallen from the trees. We took the dogs for a walk along the river. Unfortunately they got in, just seconds after this photo was taken.
In other news, five 18 week old cockerels ended up in my freezer today. Poor boys. One lucky chap was spared. From our second batch of chicks (now 10 weeks old), four out of five are male. We really have not had any luck with the male/female ratio in breeding these chooks. Oh well. I'm looking forward to the five young pullets and the rooster joining the older hens. Oh yeah and some eggs would be nice, girls.
