They used it to make a path through a corn field so they could spread manure because the spreader was too low to the ground to get through the snow.
I can't believe how that winds blew snow everywhere. I was scooping it out of nestboxes today!
I think there was only 1 casualty, a Welsummer pullet got it's feet frozen and they are pretty swollen. I expect she will lose some part of her feet from frostbite. Other than that and a few frostbitten combs on some roos, everyone looks pretty good.
The free range guineas were not very happy. For most it was their first real snow and they were perched on roofs and farm equipment shrieking at me and each other. I bet they will have a tough time finding food too, they are not used to going into the barn with the cows like the chickens do. Around cows there is always some food to be found.
