I got 5 on it
Made a mistake today, I think my chickens hate me now.
Reading on the NY thread how their chickens have been playing outside everyday all winter and 'they need fresh air'. Well we had a heat wave today, got up to 37.8F!, low yesterday was -10F. I have shoveled out part of their run a couple times and opened their pop door but they never seem interested in coming out of the coop. Snowblowed like crazy, widened the driveway, blew all the snow from in front of the garage, huge area, drove it down the bank between the garage and where we park by the house eliminating a huge area of 3' snow drift. Blew a huge area where the dwindling wood pile is, all in preparation for hopefully getting another tri-axle load of fire wood logs delivered soon. Noticed I got it down to the tree leaves in a big section next to the tree line, hmm, suns out, I bet the chickens would like to come out of the coop. Shoveled a trail from the coop to where I snowblowed and opened the big door. Hours later they still didn't venture out, so I chased them out! OMG stupid chickens! They didn't use the trail, just flew out into different areas and plopped into deep snow, some made it onto the wood pile. They all just laid there like they were dead, wings stretched out motionless, after they screamed for awhile. I figured they would eventually regroup. I climbed up on the garage roof and started shoveling off the two plus foot of snow off the low slope addition roof. Chickens never moved, didn't even talk. My chickens don't let me pick them up or touch them (except for the roo, he's super nice) I don't make pets out of them. I had to pick each motionless outstretched bird up out of the snow and carry them back to the coop. Except for the two that decided to escape up the trees they got chased back in with snow balls. Stupid chickens. Bet I don't get any eggs tomorrow.
Tara hacked beercan
I cant read all that twice.
OMG, @Beer can!! I wish I coulda seen that!! lol
Half of mine have been braving the ice and half have been glaring at me from the pop doors... I think all of them blame me for the ice and sleet, hence the scarcity of eggs here...
A couple figured out if they flap really hard they can skate across the ice, but my big Lav Orp roo crouches down and duck walks everywhere, lol...
