    And my chickens didn't die. :lol: lol...

    They were romping around the run at the break of daylight like they didn't have a care in the world. Just saying....

    Neighbor, this is a photo for several years back. It was 4 degrees above zero Fahrenheit when I took it. I open the poop door and let them decide whether to go out or stay in.

    It was probably 12 F this morning by the time I let them out. They immediately all went out. The water was frozen solid in my black rubber water bowls so I knocked the water out, filled it with fresh water, and set those bowls in the sun. They’ll probably stay thawed all day. They did yesterday.

    :goodpost: I was just having a little fun with all those people that were freaking out on the forum because it was going to be 30 in their world. :) I had no doubt that mine would be fine.

    Thank goodness for roofed run!

    Avatar pic taken three days ago. They are out in the snow. No worries. I made them some suet and they get scratch before bed.
