We are back to snow and wind and cold 22*f outside with a windchill making it really 12*f. The cold is easier to handle than the wind.
I have a light on the chickens, which they really seem to enjoy. Often times (when it is cold like this) I check on them and they are laying or sitting in the heat of light. Sort of like a wood stove for us!
The days are longer now, which helps, the hens have started laying eggs again–they are thinking spring also.
Our cat (which only goes outside if I make her and then I get clawed before I can put her down) has a great toy with the humidifier.
She can spend hours and hours just watching the little plastic fish floating on top of the water.
Silly cat…no catnip for her…just a humidifier!
