the Mason/Dixon line. I am in NC and we had 10 inches of snow before Christmas and it is still around my coop and in the run. I can honestly say that I hate going out in the am and taking care of the chickens before I go to work in the freezing cold. However, the chickens love it because I feed them something warm every morning and they are giving me more eggs. This weather is unusually early this year as I have noted the same across the country. (so much for global warming) Anyway, I just have to give a GREAT BIG THANKS for the farmers in the country who deal with severe weather all throughout the year. We would all be in a lot of trouble if you guys did not love what you do. From the bottom of my heart, I respect you all greatly. Thanks for being there !
