Last night my neighbor's house burned down. The fire started around midnight, and the house was gone by 2am. I spent most of that time hoping and praying that the flames didn't spread this way. Luckily, I live rurally, and the house was several hundred feet away. Still, there is a tree line that started to smolder, and it would have brought the fire right over here. During the ordeal, I had a thought: I have no emergency plan. There are 3 dogs in my house, and 2 brooders full of chicks. The barn that houses my layers' coop is less than 40 feet from house. If my house started to go up, which animals would get saved, and how would I go about getting them out? I am also in an area prone to tornados... and again, I haven't thought about what I would do. I'm not sure there is room in the storm cellar for all the chickens So I'd like to know from everyone: what is your emergency plan for your animals?
