    Checked radar just now, the wind is 40+MPH and -9F on the thermometer. Here is a pic of the path to the coop

    Freddie (dog) thought we were going to check on the birds. He loves to help care for them. When he found out I wasnt headed out there he turned back. The coop is in front of the hopper bin, actually was the hog house years ago.

    Its a good day to stay indoors [​IMG]

    What part of ND are you in? And how is it you can even see your coop?

    You are not far away at all. Fargo is about 70 miles N from me.

    Not sure what my chickens are, I hatched them from some free freerange chickens. For sure there are some black austrolops, barred rock, bantie w/feathered feet and some type of goldish blonde and 4 EE's (byc egg swap) that I think are all roosters (darn it)

    Your storm is headed towards us tonight. we have had 35+ mph since yesterday but the temp is 61`. The bottom should fall out tonight according to the weatherman. We are expecting rain/sleet/ice and maybe a bit of snow. We usually get ice storms here [​IMG]
    We filled a barrel up with gasoline yesterday and brought it home so we are prepared for power outage and have the generator standing by. Stocked up on groceries. Both of us retired. So we are ready for it...hopefully.
    Looking at your photo of the snow storm...looks like you need to tie a rope from the chicken house to your house just like Laura Ingalls Wilder did when she lived up north [​IMG] She ended up living her life out here in Mansfield, MO.
    Stay safe and stay warm.

    I saw a thread where they're trying to get a chickenstock together for the area in May or June. You'll have to keep an eye out for that one. I've got 13 mutts now 11 & 12 wks old with only 3 roos out of the bunch so I count myself lucky in that. The first one hatched is trying to crow now. So funny! I've got 7 Welsummers and 2 BLRW growing and due on Fri. Am I insane?

    I think its getting worse out if thats possible. [​IMG] But the animals are warm and so am I. Hope you are too!
