This snowy cold weather is really getting on my nerves now. I was okay with locking all the big birds up but NOW, it's snowing so much and with the wind blowing the brooder is now covered with snow... the brooder that sits on our covered porch! Even with the heat light in there they were all piled up so I had to dig out a big box and bring all the chicks & 1 duckling inside for the night. I must say I am very happy that our wood stove gets it so warm in here. they're all nestled in the box next to the stove and sleeping soundly.. well besides the little 'triller'
