Dang it's Cold!

DSC02824-1Goldy, the rooster, is so stoic as he waits for warmer weather up on his perch in the hen house. Got a little frostbite on those wattles, don’t you old man? It did go down to 10 last night, and even though the Cloud 9 Farm Chickens protect themselves in the wind break of the hen house, a little frostbite on those tender combs is inevitable. So before another night of 10 degrees, I’ll get him in a “football hold”, gently under one arm, and smear it good all over where it must hurt to insulate it. Oh, what we don’t do for chickens on this conservation farm!
