Last night we lost 5 of our 7 chickens due to them knocking out the heat source in their coop with an extreme weather snap (-20). Lots of sad faces around here today. 3 Rhode Island Reds (Larry, Curly, and Moe) and 2 Easter Egg Layers (Tiny and Hootie) didn't make it through the night. We're down to our 2 Buff Orphies (Buddy and Cuddle). Trying to get our 9 year old son to look forward to spring now when he can get more. He's SO sad. My husband is also a wreck. This is our first year having them. Rest in peace girls. You may never have made it to your first laying season - but you did make a little boy and his Dad very happy loving you and watching you grow up.
