The chickens survived the polar votex

We had some low temps this last week, in fact, we got below zero a morning or two. The hens survived. Two of the RIR did get a little frost bite on their combs. But they don’t seemed bothered by it and the combs don’t terrible just white-ish on the ends. The BR have tiny combs so they weren’t affected. This is something to keep in mind when getting chicks in the future. Not that we get a polar vortex every winter, but still something to consider when picking a breed.

The girls got moved on to the space where the garden used to be, they were happy and seemed very excited about new yard to scratch and peck in.
