We have now survived the 3 nights of minus 10. No bird losses and only minor frost bite on a couple of the rooster’s combs. Even in this cold, the boys are gleefully engaging in Fen Hucking. The new jiggering of the water system has kept the water thawed in wicked cold. Zina and I went inside the coop to see what the conditions are really like in the cold and wind and it is surprisingly comfortable. No drafts. The girls are all roosting, the boys are strutting their stuff and we can hear them crowing all the way inside our house. JAZ Farm chicken ranch has been put through the paces and come out the other side with a gold medal! Woohoo!
