Brrrr. Poor chickens have had it tough over the past few weeks, and while it hasn’t snowed to the extent that it has around the rest of the country, it’s still bitterly cold out there. I’ve been filling the drinker with hot water so it’s less likely to freeze over during the day, as well as making sure there are extra kitchen scraps and corn for the chickens to eat to keep up their body temperatures. I’ve also filled the coop with a lot more straw than usual so hopefully it’s not too cold at night. It can’t be too bad as they’re still laying eggs, although production has gone down.
