Priorities

I prepared for Sandy in a funny way.

I locked up the girls in the house, moved their waterer inside, gathered the eggs, and closed the window.

The coop looks weird, empty in the middle of the day.

Did I buy any water for myself? No.

Did I buy canned goods? No.

Did I protect my chickens from the hurricane?

YES.

Gunther and I watched from the cozy indoors.

And Tuesday dawned, sun on dark clouds, and the smell of spring in October.

  1. Funny… We had our chicks safe too and left them in an enclosed run with their house inside to go in and out of. They seemed a little frazelled after it was over, but appear to be recovering now. Hope your ladies are recovering too 🙂

    1. It’s funny what having chickens (or really, what having anything other than yourself to worry about) will teach you 🙂

      They had one light day where laying was NOT their priority, but they seem to have pulled through. Those hardy girls.
