a word about insulation: seriously, our chickens think that the foam insulation i put in the coop a month or two ago will keep them warmer IN their bodies rather than sandwiched in the walls.
maybe i shouldn’t have used the word “sandwich” when i described the winterizing chore to the chooks. they got hungry, i guess.
so, now, the winter wind whistles through the gaps in the cedar fence and then gently flaps the scraps of foil (that used to cover the insulation) inside the coop.
they seem to be warm – so i’m not gonna worry about it.
Happy New Year!
