    A tornado came through at 3 am. It killed 4 of my 7 chickens. How any survived is beyond me. I guess God likes chickens, especially the 3 that lived.

    I am so sorry. I live in North GA and we had that same tornado threat here. That's one of my fears --what to do if a tornado comes through. I guess there is nothing you can do but hope for the best for yourself and your pets. Again, so very sorry to hear this.

    The survivors are currently living in my basement in the brooder box they started out here in. It's roughly 4x4 w x 2 h. Two have just recently started laying again. Ones still holding out. I plan to rebuild, bigger & stronger. Even though I have no more large trees left to fall on it.
