there are a ton of us chicken lover newbies and some more experienced flock keepers that are freaking out right about now. there are tons of unanswered posts all dealing with this storm coming. i am asking those experienced with dealing with this to tell us anything we can do to get through this. and is there a way to direct the unanswered worries to one site? for myself we are to have -50 wind chills and i have polish. i dont think its ever been that cold here or anywhere for that matter that i have lived. just to make myself feel better i put a spaceheater in my coop today in a large wire cage and locked all my chickens up in there. it has a safety tip over switch so im not worried about fire. but i have another coop with my guineas that have nothing but 4 walls and a roof. maybe the heater is not necessary but i feel a lot better. it is one of those little 6x12in. realistic looking fireplaces. so with the heater in a cage where the chickens cant touch it and the safety switch i checked myself to make sure it worked what about the guineas? the barn cats? the news is stating we shouldnt be outside ourselves for more then 10 min. because of frostbite.
