    -10 in my neck of the woods.

    Not quite a record, but cold enough to freeze the boogers in my nose none the less.

    Here, the lowest (that I can think of) has been 0 for the temp with negatives in wind chill. January usually is the coldest month, but that's 'usually' low- to mid- 30's for day and high teens/low 20's for night.

    I've had my share of the cold, 6+ inches of snow and 0* temps with a -10* wind chill. The water seemed to freeze right when I set the bucket down. [​IMG]

    Its been pretty cold here the past few days, in the single digits feeling like below 0. I made sure to feed and give plenty of water for my birds, the water just freezes so fast. And their seems to be another storm on the way, this winter sure is turning out rough. We are already way above average with snowfall and winter is not even close to being finished [​IMG] .

    All's i can say is ...burrrrrrr to all

    Hooligan Farm the far east coast have been getting dumped on big time, are you in that part of NJ that got slammed the last time around?

    JJMR794 wow even down there its cold --unreal..

    _Randall_ the Lil building there isn't a pen..thats a sugar shack.. lol


    we will have some later on in spring, will test hatch and once we see fertility, will let some go again this year. actually i down size a bit on my bobs last year, down to 15 monster hens and 4 monster males, wild size bobs only 6 pair left and 2 pair of white bobs all other bob crosses gone. we actually have empty quail pens sitting here now. but been thinking of building a 25' x 100' hoop raised flight pen, we get so many local inquiries from hunting clubs and hunters wanting flight conditioned birds. don't know if i can handle all the extra work to do it though.
