In extremely cold weather, backyard chickens are at risk for frostbite, the possible consequences of which are pain, disfigurement, loss of mobility, decreased fertility in roosters and diminished egg production in hens. Mild cases are often unavoidable even given the best efforts of diligent chicken-keepers, but knowing the causes of frostbite, how to optimize a flock’s living conditions and how to treat frostbite if it occurs will limit the risks and consequences.

Along with your Victory Gardens... Uncle Sam wants you to have those chickens
Uncle Sam Expects You To Keep Chickens! Seriously--expects!! How did our country drift so far from this message? Have the corporations truly been able to manipulate and strangle the life out of our society so easily? Instead of being able to have fresh eggs from our backyards for a small cost we pay big bucks for factory farmed eggs from chickens kept in horrendous conditions. C'mon America get back to the basics!
If Uncle Sam insists. I think a chicken coop would be fun.
Kind of ironic now how Uncle Sam wants to KEEP us from raising backyard chickens..

When I was young I got a chick from somewhere and so we kept her as a pet, Gracie. She was amazing and smart and sweet to us because we treated her like a puppy she behaved like a pet and not food. Later we got a polish chicken and called him Chico...he actually followed us around played games...believe it. Every living thing appreciates life if you let them. READ THIS ARTICLE......

Chickens work that garden! #backyardchickens #gardening
These chicken tunnels allow hens to roam through your garden unsupervised so they can remove pests and fertilize it with their droppings. The other alternative is having raised beds and putting chicken wire cages over them, let the chickens run loose in the rest of the garden.
