Snow-pocolypse 2010

We have had more snow than I’ve seen in the last 15 years! As long as we don’t loose power we are fine! Right now I’m very thankful that we normally use powdered milk and cloth diapers.  Thank the Gods for the heated chicken waterer that I bought in the fall, other wise I’d be bringing the chickens warm water several times a day.  We did change the timer on the lights to be on all night, and off during the “warmer” parts of the day. It will cost us more in electricity, but I’d rather not loose any hens in this weather. The leghorns that were molting are the only ones I’m really worried about. One still has a naked back, due to being Lucky’s favorite hen.  Here are some pictures of the snow!
