Tending Chickens in Sub-Zero Weather

20130121-175749.jpg TEN BELOW this morning and only 13 above in chicken-ville! How do I know? We have a remote thermometer hanging in the coop.

Tonight’s forecast is 15 below, so I closed the sliding door between their roost and their feeding area. Unfortunately the heater in the chicken waterer burnt out so we are bringing them fresh water every few hours, too.

As a special treat they dined on leftover fries, coleslaw, and ranch dressing. I’m sure it’s no better for them than it is for me, but they sure loved it!
