    Any ideas of keeping my hens safe and alive during this crazy hurricane we are expecting this weekend? I am in Queens, NY and we are expecting pretty bad conditions.

    My plan simply is to lock them in their coop and hope the winds don't blow the coop away (it is not secured into the ground, but its pretty heavy).

    If your coop can survive a summertime thunderstorm, then it can survive what you are going to get tomorrow. This ain't gonna be a Rita or Katrina. Probably the earthquake did more damage to your coop than this hurricane is going to do.
