    Your snow is heading for us, now! No chickens for us, yet, but I wondered how they would do in heavy snow. Envious of your fruit trees and bushes - ours are not yet established. But we buy local and glean when we can.

    We can have 3 hens here in the city of Gainesville... ...so far, we have 2 RIRs, but next year I'd like to add an americana... ...really more for novelty than necessity...

    BTW...I admire those of you who can endure sub-zero temperatures... ...it's 24 degrees here this morning...which is pure sacrilege for Florida... ...I'm not amused... ...the chickens don't seem to mind it though...

    Congrats on being farmer of the day. Wow, 3 degrees this morning with a three inch snow cover. I guess I'll be doing a little shoveling today. Of course living in Minneapolis you can identify with cold and snow.

    Have a great winter day.

    Only 35 degrees here...and windy... ...plenty cold enough for me... ...What kind of chickens do you have?

    It snow a couple inches here in Nebraska with 30 MPH winds. Now this morning it is near zero degrees with bright sun but it's still brrrr cold.

    Have a great winter day.

    I feel most growers are kindred. I have much to learn from the experiences of my brothers and sisters of the soil.
