Yeah, we are supposed to get that one warm day on Saturday with an inch or so of rain.  That will be a mess after this cold and snow.  Then back to freezing.  Tis the season.

Are you gonna take the plastic off the pens when it warms up?

Yeah, I take it off a little at time.  They are larger 4 sided pens, so I generally open up the south side first.

My birds are taken care of for the cold. Long and very cold day ahead. May be last post for a while using fingers.

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

You too? lol  The birds seem to enjoy a quick warm drink before the water freezes on a day like today.

Thermometer said 4 this morning and 11 this afternoon.  With the plastic up, the water has stayed liquid today!

 

Pretty bad when you can only get supplies in by sled. lol
