Cold weather means birds of a feather…

Flock together and eat 24/7!  I have 20 Buff Orpington hens and 3 roosters.  Since I’ve made the coop so warm and cozy this winter, the birds are reluctant to get out and exercise.  Warm and cozy? Yes!  This year I actually placed heat tape (that’s normally used to protect pipes from freezing) on their roosts.  Needless to say, there are 46 very warm feet that need to get moving!!!
