    We have had a bit of cold, but nothing like today! It is less than 20 degrees and blowing! I should not complain since it is Jan. for God's sake!!!!!!!! And we have not had much more snow than we have now! Things could be a lot worse!!!!

    I can manage to deal with the cold, but the snow just makes things complicated!!!! I spend all my time shoveling paths for the chickens and never get to the driveway! At least the ducks could always glide over the top of the snow!

    It was 1 (one) degree when I let the girls out this morning. They could care. They stay out all day. It seems that when it is coldest ... I have to physically put them into the coop for the night!

    Quote:We just ended a 3 day Blizzard which i think is what you guys are getting now.

    Saturday, it was 12 deg with 45=50 mph winds with higher gusts and my dopy chickens and ducks are the same as yours, I have to "bribe" them to go into their coop.

    We have 3 ft of snow already, and its impossible to keep up with shoveling paths for them..lol..[​IMG]
