Try having 6 pasture pens out in the field, each with 100 birds in them. Oh yeah, I have 400 chicks in my shed brooding right now too. I live 10 miles from the coast in Delaware. We are freaking out right now. We are going to put all the pens next to eachother in a rectangle and put large straw bales (3' high x 5' long)around the perimeter of them to keep the wind from hitting any of the sides. We will also be putting straw down on the ground inside the pens to get them off the ground which will no doubt be WET for 2-3 days. My biggest fear is that the roof panels will rip off or collapse from the water weight. PLus the stress from the storm noise that the birds will encounter. And, WHEN we lose power, my heat lamps will be off in the shed. 1/2 of the 400 are 2.5 week old birds which will be fine without heat, but the other 200 are only 3 days old today. Please pray for us and the birds. What's more, we just processed 90 birds on Thursday, and the market for Saturday is cancelled, so we are gonna have to freeze them on Monday once the storm is gone. BUT, there will mostly likely be no power, so we are gonna have the added expense of running a generator. Either way, we are gonna miss the cashflow from the missed sales this week on top of all the other problems. If we can make it through this, we will make it in the future, as this is our 1st year. Gets better all the time.
