Considering the hawk roosted on my porch last night to stay outta the wind yeah I'd be worried but dunno what u can do

Glad that 50mph wind died down. Chickens wouldn't even come outta coop to eat some warm oatmeal this morning
Guess -14 is too much.

@Matt in Okla Glad yours made it through the night ok. Our girls are definitely more cold than hungry. They came out of the coop 2 hours later than usual, and have taken up residence underneath it. We spent about an hour yesterday putting up insulation on the outside of the coop, roof to ground, because we found out that they think shiny backed polystyrene foam board is like a big popcorn ball and kept eating what we put inside the coop. I was less worried about their ability to pass that stuff than the fact that they were filling up on it instead of their food. At least they are eating their BOSS. Next year, I think we'll use something more sturdy, or just skip the interior insulation.

My hid somewhat hid from the wind yesterday in the garden. Today at -1 they were more than happy to come out and scratch.

Howdy to all. Dark Cornish LF,  Cornish bantams, a few guineas and whatever else the coons didn't eat. Plus my quarter horses, goats and Zebu. Have a DELIGHTFUL day.

       Every day above ground is a good day. Some people didn't get that privilege this morning.

mine haven't come out yet. My ducks are out and about. they have their own coop but they decided to huddle under the chicken coop. Hopefully my girls will come out. This is their second winter and last year wasn't really cold.

I hope everyone's birds are doing well in this cold

I hope everyone is staying warm and dry today! It's a crisp 27 degrees here with sunshine, but the chickens are enjoying themselves. They ran out of their coop when I let them out and ate up every bite of scratch I gave them.

Mine are doing great. I put some petroleum jelly on my rooster's comb last night and I'm really glad I did. My Buff Brahma momma is loving this cold weather though!! I think she's the least affected by it all. Spoiled birds are good birds and a green house sounds amazing! Glad your OEGBs are laying. :) Fluffy babies are nice to look at lol
