The third looks like he took a ride in his pen as it rolled over fence and across yard. He came to great me when I pulled in and before I could see cockyard. Bird that got out this morning was put in this pen I take with me for field days in bed of truck. He got out again to give and take more licks with same cock he got into it with though pen. Fence still hot with one empty pen impaled on the grounding rod.

 

Glad to hear it wasn't any worse.  I think those winds came through here last night.  It blew and poured down rain, then it was crystal clear with a bright moon.  Winds seem to do more damage than anything else!

Everything looking better now after having a chance to go through everything in daylight this morning. Found most of the buckets and dog pen simply rolled up on end an collapsed, not really moving. Neither of the bloodied cocks interested in food this morning so they are really sore. Hay loss is aggravating..

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

I had just unscrewed all my pens since I had just wormed all the birds. Well I left them unscrewed for a few days since the weather was suppose to be nice. I'm telling you I spent hours in the yard as pens flipped I chased down roosters. As soon I would get one screwed back down another one flipped. A 4x8 dome went flying half way across the yard. Said gusts reached to 68 mph. Bout knocked me off my feet.

Had trampoline thrown at me while I was attempting to tie it down, which ended up 15 ft in the air and landed in my neighbors yard. (last year )

 

Also had my 7' x 20' aviary (new at the time) tumble into my house.

 

Winds are over for the season I think. Usually November - Dec is when it is bad here.

Winds nearly as strong today but from east. No damage.
