    E are having such weird weather. It is 40* outside, I am in Alaska, so that is really warm. Almost all of our snow is gone and my chicken run is full of water. I just put in more straw for them not much more I can do I guess. How is the weather where you are?

    We have been on the cool side. (for us)

    Had a mess of freezing rain last night. :eek: (Give me snow over ice anyday) But all in all ... our normal winter.

    Yuck, 43*f again, now with high wind warnings. Winds 55-75mph and gusts 85-100mph. And rain. The girls may just have to stay in the coop today. Let's pray no damage!

    Here in New York we have at the least a foot of snow...the temp this week is suppose to be 17* during the day and 2* at night...thats really cold! I had to cover my girls water and feeding can with hand towels and masking tape because their combs were sticking to them!:eek: It was making their combs bleed...think I got it covered now. The metal water can I keep inside their coop and use the plastic one outside...of corse I have to fill it twice a day. Anything for my girls...this is our first winter so its trial and error??

    It's my first winter with chickens too, what an adventure. I never really used to care about what the temps were. I watch the numbers pretty close now.

    Ha HA HA! :)

    Unusably cold here too (so much for global warming?). This week they are calling for mid 20’s during the day and single digits at night…

    So you all have our weather, we are still in the mid 30's and have lost almost all of our snow. I am afraid that the hens ate going to think it is fall again when it cools off again and start molting. Lets hope not, I am enjoying all the eggs :)

    Quite windy here in North Wales tonight, although not as much as the other night - anymore rain and the rivers will be pulling down yet more trees! This was a river near my elderly great aunty's house a couple of weeks ago - the line of trees you can see in one of the pics is usually the river bank!

    Bet my babies are glad I live on a hill!

    Mind you, we're back in double figures temp-wise (Celsius) after a cold snap recently. Rather cold, it was. But it's forecast snow next week, lots of it.. And we get lots of snow where I am. Bring out the sledges and the 4x4, hoo-ra!

    Wonder what my babies will think of their first snow? Xxx

    I'm glad of the drier weather over the last few days to be honest, the rivers are getting back to normal now. The rain has been causing all sorts of problems in the UK this past year!

    Still waiting on the snow though... :/
