Cass--You sure we dont have the same husband??? Cause we have all the same things going on here (bullet proof coops, turning over logs, etc.) lol Stony---thanks for the links but there will NEVER be diapers on any chicken on this property! Mine all live outside, heatless and lightless, like normal chickens should. I realize that some people will bring in their pets and such and thats okay but while I love my cheeps, they will remain outside. Besides, I hate changing diapers. I would rather shovel out a coop! Had one frozen cracked egg today. First time. Saving it for the cheeps tomorrow. My dd got home in time to give my silkies a warm drink before bed. They had frozen waterers. Big coops seem okay. I will have to look into heated dog bowls for my littles. I do hope we get the warmup they are calling for next week. All my cheeps went out today despite the cold. I took pity on the silkies and let them out. They prefer to be outside unless I make them stay in. The terrorists run out then under their coop, which has a million crators from them digging. The big girls do that too but they have strategicaly pushed all the leaves and dirt into a burm that sheilds them from the wind. Cant decide if that was smart thinkin or dumb luck on their part! Stay warm everyone.
