    WOW Its the first time in 2 weeks my chickens have seen daylight! The temps went from -30F night before last to 39F last night! It is 30F right now...9am...so I opened all the doors and let the sunshine in. To bad there is 4 foot of snow in most of the run, but there is a small space they can get out if they want...the left over spinach salad I throw out there should help!

    Of course the wind chill is still only 19F......but it is a warm 19...I can go out and play! [​IMG]

    Looks like we'll have to wait until Thursday to get back to normal temps. It's 16 right now- opened the big girls coop door- they won't set foot outside. You know it's bad when the alpacas won't come out of their house! [​IMG]

    It's going to be 22 today! It's like the first day of summer vacation. Chickens can get out - Kids can get out! Thank you God for a survivable temperature!

    I'm with you on this heatwave! Supposed to be 20 today and 32 by Wednesday. My daughter and I decided maybe it was time to get out the shorts [​IMG]

    Even the chickens are all out today in the sun and I will be able to clean their coop of all the frozen poop. It is hard to clean it out effeciently when they are all in there.
