Ok, I know I am jumping the gun here, but I have only been chickening since April and Rhode Island hasn't seen a REAL hurricane since the 1980s. I'm just worried about wind damage to the hens. I don't think they'd fare too well with 90 mph winds. I am just thinking about bringing them inside (I only have 5 bantams) and putting them inside our 2 Akita-size dog crates and facing them into each other. This way they're inside with us and I won't have to go outside every 2 minutes worrying. Is anyone else thinking ahead? If Earl starts moving west, we are in for a tough ride along the east coast.
