Finally feels like Fall! Hurricane Ian update 🍃

Update on Hurricane Ian!
Disclaimer: Bear Bear will come in when we actually start getting heavy weather. He’s loving the cooler weather.
Here is some good information to know for new Florida residents experiencing their first Hurricane.
Overnight Ian Thoughts:
1. This track is by NO means set in stone. Yes, the models are close to agreeing. Does that really matter? Mother Nature does what she wants sometimes and forecasting the path of a hurricane is probably the toughest part of our science. We've seen it several times before. Hurricane Charley might be the best example.
2. The winds of Ian will very likely start to weaken long before reaching our latitude. (East-West line) The same pattern that will probably steer it to the right is also the same ingredients that will cause the storm to peak in the Southern Gulf, and begin to weaken before a potential landfall. That weakening could be significant.
3. But at the end of the day, it is almost guaranteed that tropical storm winds will impact the area on Wednesday and Thursday...stronger on the coast. Also remember, the extreme winds with any hurricane, are in a VERY small part of the storm. It's usually only about 10 miles out and scattered at that. I don't want to minimize the threat, but I also don't want you to think that this giant mass of winds greater than 120 mph will hit the entire area. That's just not how it works. I continue with my thoughts...think Irma. The winds will be comparable for most, but a few areas will have winds higher. Again, the strongest winds will be along the coast, NOT inland. (Think West of I-75)
4. My biggest concern is the surge. That's an area of water pushed by the storm that goes inland as the storm approaches land. It's not a wall of water...it's more like a rise in water. If Ian stays just offshore and moves up the coast, it will push water all along our beach communities. How far would the surge go inland? It's usually right along the coast, but in some cases, with a storm like this, maybe 1/4 miles inland. I've seen surge in Port Richey go all the way to US 19 with Josephine back in 1995. There will be evacuations starting on Monday. Find your flood zone. If you live in a zone being evacuated, DO SO. "Hide from the wind and run from the water" is my mantra in this kind of situation.
5. This is NOT the time to freak out. Rule #7 is a motto I use in hope of getting people to realize things aren't always as bad as they seem. It's tough to make a good decision when you're freaking out. This track is absolutely not set in stone. The NHC just said that in their 11pm advisory. However, as I see it, people who live right on the beach, or within a stone's throw from the beach, need to take this seriously. If the track is more offshore, we're good to go. That could absolutely happen. If it doesn't, it could mean a lot of water.
6. This community is my home. I'm blessed to live in paradise. We WILL get through this, whatever we face. I take your faith in our team seriously, and I promise we will get you everything you need to know to keep you and your family safe. You mean the world to me. Thanks for your trust. Now let's go tackle this together.
Here are some ideas to keep your Flock safe during the impending hurricane:
1.) If your coop is solid and passes the shake test, make some wind breaks if it is more open (plywood works). Make sure they can perch off the ground as well.
2.) Use a shed or your garage. Maybe use an old tent, fill with shavings. Add food and water. If you only have a few chickens, you can also use some dog crates.
3.) If you have a chicken tractor and no other shelter available, make sure to secure your tractor with tie downs. You can attach these to sandbags or stakes. Definitely try to add wind breaks. Secure your nesting boxes if they are milk crates.

Harvesting Sunflower seeds for Our Chickens 🌻
Just a reminder!
Keep nesting boxes clean with fresh bedding. If your hens p**p in them at night, try cutting off access in the evening.
When washing eggs, use warm water. Do realize that the bloom which protects the egg from bacteria will be gone once you wash them, so you will need to refrigerate them.
You don’t have to wash your eggs… the bloom protects them. This is why it’s important to keep the nesting boxes clean.

If you raise chickens for eggs:
🥚 Collect eggs often
🥚 Throw away cracked eggs
🥚 Rub dirt off eggs with fine sandpaper, a brush, or a cloth (washing with cold water can pull germs into the egg)
🥚 Keep eggs refrigerated

Spot on conversation!
Fun fact Friday.
Let’s talk about eggs.
(Pictured is a chicken and duck egg)
For one did you know that a lot of commercial chickens have their beaks cut to not allowing pecking of each other in confinement? This is considered “ok” (have you ever watched a chicken try to eat with a messed up beak?)
Cage free - this simply means they don’t live in a cage. But what defines a cage? Packed in a metal building with limited space still feels like a cage if you ask me.
Free range - sounds good but this simply means they must have access to the outdoors. But how much access?
Antibiotic and hormone free eggs - no eggs contain these. Just like meat is not run through a processor without proper withdrawal time for antibiotics same with milk.
Organic - honestly all this means is they are getting organic feed. What about their well being?
Vegetarian fed - we’ll then they for sure aren’t free range nor are they eating their natural diet. I’m not sure how this label is even a thing since a chicken will eat a mouse, lizard, bug, anything that walks past it that it can catch. How could one be sure s chicken never ate such thing? (Confinement?)
Now the whole orange yolk ordeal - if you raise chickens you can tell when your birds are foraging well based on the color of their yolks. One would think the same about store bought eggs but egg producers have caught on and feed dried marigolds to enrich the color of the yolk without actually enriching the chickens lives.
So what’s the best option? Buy from a neighbor who’s raising hens in their backyard. Even if they are confined to a coop and run i still would almost bet they are more humanely cared for than the ones being mass produced. I’d almost bet money everyone has someone within a reasonable distance of them that would sell some of their eggs it just might take some looking depending on the regulations where you live.
