Had overnight lows below freezing the past couple of nights. When it's that cold out, Chupa gets to come inside so he can warm up while having breakfast. News Theme by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/...)

Chupa looks so very healthy with beautiful feathers. Is he warm enough at night? The chickens in back of us in Germany stayed out at night, I think, in the chicken house (probably had straw) and pecked around outside during the day.

The horses and cows and other farm animals in Zweibrucken, Germany, stayed in the stone barn and the owners lived above them on the second floor. You could see the smoke rising from the house from the fireplace and stove. Then there was a very high big pile of turnips (or something) covered with dirt I think for their food all winter. During the day the farmers would get in their wood wagon pulled by two horses and go to the fields. After that the young handsome German soldier would march down the road in their gray (?) uniforms. But the chickens just stayed there and pecked around all day. If the Americans tried to hang out clothes, the geece might come running at them and try to peck the eyes out of small children (my retired Navy son still has a small scar under one eye). After I learned German, I went over and visited the farmer and his family and toured their farm. :-)

(I did not know my ethnicity and did not think I was or was ever taken for German. In fact I am from Eastern German which is Scandinavian. I was taken for Danish when there and spoken to in Danish. I had no idea why I had blond children. That was a shock. But then I realized that was acceptable and liked. I also had relatives who came here from Sweden too. I realized that the Danish Ohio woman across the street who I do not talk to because of her husband could be a distant cousin of mine from where my family is from. Who knows. They do not. My cousins are also Norwegian.)

People did not want to talk about themselves because of the social ostracism with each new group that came over. So we often lost a lot of our true history. Then DNA and introduction to relatives came along.

Chupa has great timing! Who knew. I swear I can hear his heart in that cockle dodle doo.
