Hello there all! I have gotten to thinking. This will be my first winter raising chickens. I had ducks last winter (but that is a whole different story) but I think chickens will be a tad bit different from ducks. So, lets begin by sharing all of our tips and DIY tricks for keeping things thawed and other such things. As winter progresses, we will share stories of how our tips and tricks are working, maybe need to find different ideas if some are not working, and share pictures of chickens enjoying the snow! Here are some topics I would love to see some ideas on: 1. Keeping those waterers thawed, because we all know how hard it will be to get ice chunks out of them. 2. How to keep the eggs from freezing. 3. What to feed them for a nutritionally balanced diet when they don't have greens. 4. Preventing frostbite. 5. When it might be necessary to bring in extra means of heat. 6. Things for them to do since they won't have worms to search for, the ground will be too frozen for dust baths. Let's have fun with our chickens this winter! ALL BYC RULES APPLY.
