it is so cold
It got below zero and the chickens already have a few nips of frost bite on their waddles, so I brought them into the house. It is just too wierd. Chickens in the basement. I'm going to have such a mess to clean up when I move them back outside. We put them in the big long understairs closet. I had to clean out a lot of junk before I moved them in. I can hear them clucking down there now. Yesterday about supper time Chris got sick of the noise they were making and shut off the light. It is amazing-- when the light is off they sleep. It is as easy as that. If my kids had been that easy to put to sleep my life would have been much better as a young mother.
