    Undigested food. I started seeing undigested hay/greens and oats in the poop that first winter. Within a week of seeing that and putting two and two together my Dad asked me if I had grit for them (Old farmer checking up on me). I said no I didn't. LOL. Rookie year is always a humbling year.

    Hey Ralphie: Did you read what my in-coop temp was this morning with that Flat Panel and reflectix lined coop. => -10F. Still dang cold. I know I could probably do without it now....now that everybody is dubbed and trimmed...etc. But BRRRRRRR. That -25 this morning is a nasty nasty bit of weather. I just like being able to do it I guess if it makes them feel better without total spoiling. During their little feather exams I am impressed with the down at the base of those feathers. Ooo...those Minnesota chickens grow toasty feathers.
