Some people may not know what off-the-grid or off-grid means, so here it is --- The term off-the-grid or off-grid refers to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities.

Off-grid living is no longer a one room log cabin in the woods. It's energy independency. You don't have to rely on utility companies, you create your own power. Today, there are more than 180,000 off-grid homes in the US.

Egg-cellent Layers...

41 degrees - 8:50 pm - on and off light showers with 50+ mph wind gusts...

Out of 10 laying hens, we are getting 7-10 eggs a day with an occasional double yolker thrown in.


{Side note: We are now down to only 10 chickens.  About two weeks ago we finally decided to get rid of Captain.  No he didn't end up as chicken nuggets - he really did go to someone who was wanting a rooster.  Two days after Captain left, one of the girls passed away - no really sure why.  So that leaves us with 10 happy laying hens.}
