Chicken Response to High WInds

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Today I am stuck at home at a time when a strong weather front is coming through. Wind is strong and currently out of south. A hen with seven juvenile offspring is free-ranging around house while a second with six nearly juvenile chicks is free-ranging in fenced perimeter within the apple orchard. Hen around house has moved into brush to south of house while hen in orchard is staying among pens. Both locations are protected from worst of wind yet provide good view of area. Neither doing much in the way of foraging. Wind is strong enough that birds could easily fly high into a tree with little effort.

Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it.

Both groups went to roost a good thirty minutes early. The spent a little time at their respective feeding stations but did not consume enough to achieve crop fill.
