RE: [Just-Food-City-Chicken-Meetup-NYC] Extreme cold!

I worry today and thru the night especially. The wind is bad.
Mine are out of their coops at 8:30 am and  in their enclosed pen. I wrapped 3 walls for wind/snow protection with tarps last week when we had snow predictions.
  I occasionally give them warm oatmeal and raisins for a treat and small. I also give them un striped black sunflower seeds for added fat/carb to keep them warmer......and scratch.
 It is brutal out there, but I have no other options. I notice they are all huddling together out of the wind so that is a start.
 That and my pen has a deep layer of shavings to help provide warmth in winter if they dig in a bit. I add DE and they dust bath in it as well.
Good luck everyone!

My 3 girls are locked in my basement with a heater that hangs from the ceiling.  They are allowed to roam a space about 15 x 20 and there is a roost and nesting boxes there.   And of course food and water. I am afraid to allow them outside in these temps.

Hi All,
I am finding myself with the same dilemma here in the Bronx. I am fearful of letting my girls out today in these frigid temps. They usually free range in the yard, rain or shine, and can go back to the coop, or other hidey hole place around here during the daytime if they wish...but today and tomorrow, well I just don't know.
I'll be following this thread closely. Thanks all...Sherrill
