|Me four. I've been trying to convince John that we need to move out of Dodge but he balked. And now the housing market is slowing down quite quickly and I know we couldn't afford a small farm almost anywhere in Colorado. And a lot of them are covenant controlled! I don't THINK so.
Friday night it dipped down to about -5 with the wind chill. I had gone out about 8pm & popped them up into their coop as they're too dumb to figure out how to go up the ramp. Unfortunately they are like moths and go towards the light and after I had gotten them up, unbeknownst to me one had jumped back down after I had walked away with the lantern. She couldn't get back up the ramp & so ended up freezing. The weather wasn't any warmer yesterday and I ended up losing 3 more to the cold. So, last night in that cold I strung an extension cord from the house all the way to the coop & put in a heating pad. They did fine last night like that. A bit worried about tonight/tomorrow as its supposed to be even colder with massive winds....
Never be afraid of a scar. It just means that you were stronger than something that tried to hurt you.
