    Evacuated the coop this morning. Chickens would probably have been fine but its getting difficult just to make it out there for feeding and such.

    5 to 8 more inches of snow to come today/tonight. Yuck!

    I just penned in this stall last week in anticipation of spring chicks. Should make life easier for both chickens and peoples for a few days.

    This is a brooder I'm putting together, I put a nesting box in there to hold them over until the snow thaws.

    Its good you have a nice barn pen as an alternative for the flock. With this seemingly endless winter, who knows how long they will be in there. I hope you don't get a snow drift in front of your barn door. I try to keep my barn doors clear of snow but every day seems to bring some blowing or accumulation of snow and I have to use all my weight to get even the sliding door open because of freezing snow.
