I'm home sick today, but still needed to tend to the birds. Got down to about -14 F last night. It was about -5 F when I went out to the coop at 9:30am. As you can see, the sun doesn't get very high here this time of year. It will not get above the trees again untill late February or Early March even at noon. Yes, those are tomato cages, I got lazy this fall. Looks pretty cold out, but the turkeys don't care. I let the birds out for a little bit. Inside the coop. No one has any frostbite on combs or feet. The turkeys use the top roost at night, everyone else uses the rafters. It isn't pretty, but it works pretty well. Birds don't seem to care about pretty. In fact they've been developing their own painting scheme in there... I'm adding a couple more pics since I didn't get much of the chickens and peafowl. I turned the shavings and added more shavings at dusk. It was getting a bit poopy in there. No bad odors, but then it's below zero. Chickens; the Barred Rocks are mutts and two lay green eggs, and another lays pinkish/brown. You can barely see my EE hen to the right with the EE cockrel. Peafowl breeding pair. The Peacock is just getting a really good bunch of feathers after moulting late this fall. I need to run to the feed store and pick up some more shavings, pellets and scratch. I'm running at about 8-10 inches of deep litter with DE to keep everything nice and dry. Turning the litter at least once a week.
