She is the leader to where the other girls will go, if she don't go out, they don't go out.  what can you do? :idunno

 

Will you bring Fi in the next few nights or will she be warm in the coop? I suppose the other hens will keep her warm.

The folks directly across from our house run their own Chiropractor business and have a fancy sign that tells you the current temp and time. It says 2 right now. Tomorrow is just going to be harsh. Immediate frozen boger weather. I think I'll keep the ladies locked in the coop. they'll love that.

I'll probably leave her out there, but I've added 2 heating pads to be turned on tonight to generate more heat in the coop
Due to the sun, it is 25 in my run right now, so it will be a huge drop tonight, so I'll play it by ear...

My favorite instructional threads:

Poop Board Convert / Instructions for very easy heated waterer related: Frozen nipples finally working /  No waste bucket feeder / DIY thread Lets see your inventions / Mama heating pad in the brooder

Not instructional, but what a ride, only read if you have time to kill/can't sleep, it is a book you can't put down!:

My neighbor hates my chickens,...

So it's supposed to be -32 tonight for the low... as I'm sure it is for all of you. I was wondering if it would hurt to put a little space heater in the coop to help a bit? I'd mount it a couple feet above the bedding to make sure it didn't start a fire. What I'm wondering mainly is if home space heaters put off any fumes harmful to birds?

No problem, We will be at my grandkids until early afternoon.  I am not going to waste my day watching football so I will be on the road when that starts.
