Finally after 10 days of no power, we are finally going to be able to get back to normal. Every one of my chickens survived. We had to really support our coops but they stood up alot better than our electric poles. Here is the kicker, we tried to add wind breakers for them and instead of getting in the coop they hunkered down.. (a Houston weatherman term) behind the breakers. Here I am at Midnight in the middle of a hurricane trying to grab birds and toss them in the coop. They sleep outside normally but always get in the coop in bad weather, but I was afraid that since the we added so much support to the coop and door they wouldn't know really where to go, but I got then inside (my dh thought I was nuts). All of us survived and last night YAAAA power and water came back on. I guess they alot tougher than we tend to give them credit for.
