  2. So, those silly chicks are still roosting on that steel beam every night, and I'm moving them to the wooden roosts once it's dark enough that they won't fly back up. Not a huge problem, though you'd think I was devouring them[​IMG] I've only been moving them because the metal gets cold, but do I really have to? Y'see, Mr. P and I will be going on a short trip for my birthday, and the grandparents will be watching the girls and the animals the 2 nights we're gone. I usually fill up the feeder and waterer so that the only thing to be done for the chickens is to open and close the door--and there's enough room that they could, technically, just be left in the whole time. I know that the steel beam won't go colder than the ambient temperature, and I've checked the forecast. Will a 37-40 degree Fahrenheit steel bar cause frostbitten toes If the chicks stay on it all night? the supplemental lighting comes on at 4am, so before the coldest part of the night--and the lights are incandescent Christmas lights wrapped around the beam.

    Amy, even on a metal pole temperatures above freezing will not cause frost bitten feet. They should be fine. Have a Happy Birthday, and leave your worries at home.
     
  8. If they get on the bar with wet feet could be bad if the bar is below freezing

    At those temps they should be fine... if you're really worried, wrap some old cloth (worn out clothes or towels) around it... duct tape or electrical tape works wonders, lol... Fudge came in!!! Thank you!!!! :drool :love :hugs :thumbsup
    She's beutiful, K!!! Got your fudge... ;)
