This cold weather has been really hard on all of our farm animals. The cows and chickens and ducks love to be outside and usually, thats the best place for them to be. They need fresh air and plenty of exercise. But when the weather is really cold, it isn't safe for the animals to be out for very long. Lately the temperature has been near 0 degrees and that means the chickens and ducks can't go out at all. We have 3 heat lamps in their chicken house. We also put extra straw in to help keep them warm. We put their food and water in there too. They really don't like being cooped up! Here is a little video of the chickens and ducks on a cold winter day!
