-5 and falling - How is everyone doing??

Discussion in 'Managing Your Flock' started by ole-crone, Jan 22, 2008.

  1. Minus 5 and falling. Supposed to get down to -18 tonight.

    I was just wondering how everyone is doing with their own cold weather as we fall into the deep freeze?

    The chickens seem to be enjoying it. I hate the thought of them being out there tonight when it gets so cold.

    Brrrrrrrrrrrrr! Ya'll are having some cold weather. We haven't had anything below 0 yet. It was in the single digits a few days ago, but has warmed up a little. I guess it's about 20 degrees F right now. Haven't checked what the low is suppose to be. I've closed the coop's pop door and the temps holding at 33 degrees in there w/ no added heat. I wouldn't worry so much about them if it would stay like that.

    The moon is huge tonight.....it was orange earlier.

    Stay warm![​IMG]
