As this year nears the end, with dark wet nights, I am looking forward to getting beyond the shortest day on Dec 21st. The chickens are very receptive to the daylight increase, and start laying more quite soon after that point in time. I love how this photo captures not only the colour mix but the size mix that occurs with our gorgeous flock of birds.
We will be closed, phones turned off and emails ignored! from 1pm on Friday Dec 24th until 10.30am on Sunday Jan 2nd to spend time with our kids and Iris, our grand daughter, definitely the bright light of 2021.
To perhaps make life easier for our customers, we will add a day, opening on Thursday Dec 23rd from 10.30 – 4.30.
Please stay safe everyone, we are continuing to operate outside as much as possible, masks mandatory and with e transfer the best way to avoid covid transfer!, though we do take all methods of payment!
We have great stock of most things, as ready as possible for whatever the world throws at us next. We certainly feel blessed to live on the Saanich peninsula, where we seem to have dodged a lot of issues that others in BC have had to deal with.
Best wishes from all of us at White House Stables for the Christmas break and New Year
