Baby it's cold outside!

At -13 degrees this morning, I was up at dawn and outside dressed in double layers to check and feed the hens. With the wind we had last night and a chill factor of -30, it was no wonder my glasses fogged up with my hat pulled low and the scarf over my mouth and nose funneling my warm breath upwards.

All was well in the coop! I had put extra deep straw down for Miss Henny Penny as she is on her own since the last disagreement she had with the other hens...I think she quite likes her own apartment. The others were all snuggled nicely on the roost. All that was needed was to pop the giant ice cubes out of the rubber water dishes and provide more water and feed. I will repeat at three o'clock after work.

Miss Dew also wore layers out for her morning schnuffle, although with the temps this morning she made it more of a fox trot!

Here's hoping you keep warm too!
