I love storms, but I now have chickens, and I'm scared a tree will crash down on the coop! I do have an extra coop just in case that happens... You see we live in the woods and a couple trees, and tons of big branches always come down a big storm like this. I keep loosing chickens due to things like raccoons and hawks and sickness... I don't want to loose the 8 I have now, I have already lost 7, and I might loose one more, because it is a rooster, and it is biting and it might be noisy... What should I do? I'm going to lock them in their coop, like my friend told me to do, her son and her family have been doing chickens for 14 years, and since the door is facing the wrong direction the wind and rain will come right though the door. Any advice for a frantic mommy of 8 chicken babies? I cleaned the cage this morning, and gave them fresh food and water...
