    the chicken poo is steamy. [​IMG] This is my first year with a flock and this morning when I let the chickens out to free range I noticed a cloud of steam coming from somewhere in the lawn. As I got closer I realized it was fresh chicken poo. [​IMG] It's getting cold here!

    I haven't noticed steam from the duck poo yet, but I can see my breath when I let them out of the pen in the morning. Time to shop for a heated water bowl. I am NOT chipping ice like I did last year!

    you know it's getting cold when your hens and rooster's comb start to look paler(the ones with the large combs anyway). Ugh frost bite!

    Cold? I wish!!! I feel like we've moved to a steamy rain forest. Two weeks of rain and another one predicted. Send all of your chickens over for a bug feast.
