    I have a feeling the "Getting use to losing the Powerball" seminar is going to be a large class, I will just pencil you in for it now.

    Mine says -19.9...

    When I checked on Bert Jr tonight they were "outside" and not in their coop! I am a tad worried. By Outside I mean they were snuggled together under a plastic roof and with plastic covered walls on 3 sides and not in the "Nice" new coop I built them...

    I wish. My tooth has been hurting so bad and I am in that period between pain pills. I can't have another for 20 more minutes.


    I also wanted to check temps as I am a worried about Bert Jr and the gals like I said.

    I gave them lots of shell corn I hope it helps. I will have to get more corn tomorrow when I go to dentist.

    They are as stubborn as a pony refusing to use the coop. But I did get an egg out of it!!

    Not a big fan of the dentist. Hope all goes well for you.

    It sounds like Bert Jr and the ladies are comfy where they are. They are out of the wind and together so they should be ok.
    Of course I am sitting here thinking of temps too obviously. I just don't like it so dang cold. If only the winters here weren't so up and down with temps and humidity. So hard to keep the birds happy and healthy sometimes.

    What is with all the crap articles and posts written in like chinese symbols and all that? Literally the whole home page is full of crap. Do we need to be concerned of viruses or something from BYC?

    Super frustrating with all the jibberish posting!

    Good luck with your tooth. Hope you get some decent sleep. I hope to wake up and NOT see a calf in the barn!! [​IMG]

    Night Ralphie.

    Rhett's what a night and weather to be waiting on a calf!
    Fun anticipating the new arrival though!

    -24 F here. I'm guessing the coop may be -10 or so we'll see.

    Ralphie hope you got some pain relief and some sleep. Time to call the dentist.

    It's only -18 here, I wimped out and put a heater in the coop and it's hovering around 30/32. I know they really don't need it but the old girls looked so sad and didn't get off the roost much.
    The young ones don't seem bothered by the cold at all.
