I now have 15 chickens in my little 12 X 12 kennel/coop. My Jersey Giant/Welsummer cage will colapse tonight or tomorrow. The roof is welded wire and tarps. The coop is covering a grape arbor. It was ment to keep out Washington RAIN, not feet of ice and snow. We have had more snow then ever already and a big storm is coming tonight with major winds, rain and more snow. I am positive the roof will not hold till it all melts. So I now have my champion award winning Welsummers cooped together with the riff raff just so they are not killed when it colapses. I have tried to re-enforce it, but the snow and ice is so heavy I can't get anything under it and it is so frozen I can't get the ice and snow off of it. It is just crazy! I will get pictures when the sun comes up. Just thought I would vent a little. We left New Hampshire for Washington thinking we were getting away from weather like this!!
