something I never had before, wind did blow of lock from the egg door or something strange... the coop door closed, but I ended up with snow in coop. i use sand. birds were not happy, but i did cover under roof vents openings with blanket strips on inside so if the snow would blow from the top (not likely...). I still can not figure out how did snow got inside, unless it was blowing so ad that it did go under the roof....
and I added them heat lamp with thermostat (standard 35 on- 45 off)... I guess I'll have some casualties.
the door is reinforced with concrete 1/2 block...
there is not a lot of snow in coop, I did rake most out, but still some. I guess it is what it is, aside of 3 feet drift in run and chickens kept in coop. orlofs are like, snow so what... tough buggers
i'll start all new flock in a little bit as soon as eggs/chicks will start coming.
When it comes to MG and Ideal, in CO they can not legally ship MG infected chicks.So whoever got birds sick from them and can prove it as closed flock can seek returns and damages.
