I'm up in Central Ma and we are looking at up to two feet for tomorrow with up to 75 MPH winds....
I'm located in RI. We've had a couple snowstorms this winter, and I just plug in the heated waterer, add extra bedding to the coop, and put some Vaseline on my hens' combs. They mostly stay inside, and that keeps them warm. Feel free to ask if you have any more questions!
Yeah I did put a lot of extra bedding in today. Unfortunately I don't have the heated water though.
oh. it was a worthwhiile investment, if you are thinking about one for next year.
I have eggs in the incubator....hopefully we can keep power.
Ooohhh... wishing you luck
Me too. I pray we don't lose power.
Oh I will be thinking of you with the eggs! I read about a lady who had a similar situation and lost power and she and her daughter put the eggs against their skin to keep them warm! That's dedication! LOL
Yes I am thinking of going this route next year
I'm here at the Jersey shore and we're expecting 60 mph winds and a foot of snow. I have two-week old chicks in a brooder in the basement, with a heat lamp on them. I am worried about the power too. I am planning to use big Mason jars filled with hot water if the power goes out. Anyone have any other ideas?
