    Here, YES, that's what happens when you feed on one of those blistering cold days where you feel like you're in a wind tunnel!

    I live on top of a hill. The wind up here is horrible. Some genius decided to put an addition on our place and made it so the wind hits the addition and it diverts it right into our front door if it's open. Well... It doesn't have to be open. The door isn't mounted right and snow blows in through a crack on top. I don't have to go outside for "chicken nipples".

    LOL! We've got fields everywhere, NO windbreaks. We don't get snow, but we do get full blown wind gusts through cracks in windows and doors. Last month we spent $700 in oil here!!!

    Welcome from Cumberland County!
    ADORABLE!
    If my scovies ever start laying again, I've got a white scovy covered by a black/white drake.
    Welcome to the madness, you've come to the right place!
    Welcome....not sure who you're speaking to or where you're from.....give us those details and we can tell you who has what!
    Watch it or you'll talk me into them!

    Fingers crossed for you!
    LMAO....and I thought my house was the most screwed up design ever!
    OUCH! Thankfully with the woodstove going full-time, I think we've turned the furnace on 3 times in the last 2 months. Went to a soap making class at Dickinson College Farm today...really interesting....not sure I actually want to make my own now...but at least I understand the basic concept of it now!

    Very elementary setup but temp was at 101 when they went in and humidity was 32. Humidity is now up to 58(!) and temp dipped quick now back up to 99ish. Should I worry?

    Cute Pups! 'Fit the bill'. Hee hee.

    The wings on your chicks look fine to me, looks like the feathers coming in. They are only fluff balls for about a second before the feathers come. Beware, you are about to enter the 'ugly teenager' phase.

    BTW, laundry basket for a brooder....very clever..
