I really hate compalining about the cold weather since i am in Florida. It has been really cold and wet here in central Florida. I had 5 silkie chicks drown in the rain. That was the worst thing i have ever incountered having chickens. It is like they commited suicide in the rain. My FAVORITE hen has snotty stuff coming from her nose and eyes. This just started after i came home from a swap. I am so freaked out i started her on Tylan and Vetrx. The coop got trash bags stapled on to keep the drafts from getting them and i am doing everything i can. I just feel so horrible for them!!! Should i get lights for them , to warm them up? I mean it is only dropping to 40 but i am still worried!!! SOOOOOOOOOOOO fustrating and to add i now have a pullet with fowl pox. She is in the shed by herself. It is warm in there cause of the 2 heat lamps from my brooder boxes. And 3 of my chicks in the brooder boxes have snotty noses as well. I feel i am jinks or something. LONG story but i always do the right thing but dang it keeps biting me in the you know what!!! I am totally venting and i should probally stop! Just so stressed out about my flock!! And to make matters worse we go away on friday - sunday. How am i gonna do this?
