    Quote:My DBF, convinced the chickens would freeze, draped a blanket over the new broody/nursery coop and tacked a thick towel on the north wire wall of my coop. I'm pretty sure they'll be juuuuuuuuuuuuuuust fine. The week old chicks are gonna have to keep close to mama but she's got a roommate to heat things up in there.

    The ducks and geese dove right into their pools this morning making me shiver! The chickens are running around like normal. Wish I had a built in coat like theirs this morning. The newly hatched chicks were a bit peeved, lol, added an extra heat source for them. Now to hide away for the day is in order for me.

    I'm with you shellie, too cold to go out. Wish I had a coat out of your white goose feathers......they are so beautiful. Our little splash is happy with her new BCM sisters and peeping away. She fits with those 2 lovey girls perfectly.

    Let me know how tomorrows surgery goes on your husband, wish him well.

    One thing we love to do on cold evenings when we're finishing the chicken chores for the night is to pick up one of our Embden geese and slide our hands up under their wings. Ooooh, such soft warmth, what bliss! They wear their goose-down ski jackets all year 'round and it's on nights like these that they're glad they do.

    I figure that since many folks keep poultry in much colder & snowier climates than this that my birds will do fine during our all-too-infrequent cold snaps. As long as they're protected from direct cold winds they shouldn't have any problems.

    I like how the chickens look on cold mornings, they puff out their feathers and all look so plumpy & full. My poor guinea wishes that she had a scarf for her bare neck, she hunches up her shoulders and pulls her neck into the feathers, looking like a lady wearing a coat with a fluffy fur collar. I imagine her thinking "It never got this cold back in Africa!"
