Well, WELCOME TO WINTER.
I could have done without it.
And to top it off, the guys that use our barn never roofed the coop as they promised. So hubby and I tried to cover the coop and run with plastic held down with cement blocs. Well, guess what, it's majorly windy, so the stuff is all blown around and bunched up and only covering part of it. Grrr. I did find a large tarp with tie down holes, but it's way too windy to try and put that up. As soon as we can, though, I plan to put the tarp over the coop and tie it down to large eyebolts that are attached to the bottom frame. The chickens are not thrilled and won't come out of the run, lol.
Same up north. Didn't think the girls would want to go out, but open their door anyway. One came out and turned right around and went back in. Then 2 stuck their head out and went back in. Mine are still laying good also.
Gave them some scratch grain and a section of straw to pass their time.
There first sight of snow and wind today. Opened the coop and they were afraid to come out. they slid a little down the steps and turned around and went back in. I threw scratch out but they wouldn't come out. I did throw some in the coop and they loved having it inside. I went in the run and kicked up the straw so there was no snow on the ground and eventually they made their way out. Tonight it will be the coldest night they faced yet so keeping my fingers crossed.
Well, the whiteouts are certainly keeping things interesting today.
