Re: Totally O/T Do Chickens Survive In Winter ? ? ?
Can't say I know the answer to that one, I have grown up on our ranch, and both sets of grandparents ranchs all my life. Never heard of the question before, but if ur ever board, I mean really board, go grab ya one of them chickens, hold its nose in the dirt till it calms down a lil bit, then take ur finger, put it right on the tip of its beak, and draw a straight line out from its beak in the dirt, about a foot long, then come back, and do it agian, do it about 4 or 5 times real slow, then very slowly take ur hand off its head(still holding its beak in the dirt) and take a few steps back real slowly. And that chicken will sit there and look at that line until u break its concentration. Its a old trick thats been around a while, my grandma used to do it back in the day cause she didn't like to go out and physicly kill one of em. But anywase, not sure if one of em could live a winter. Maybe if it had its nose outta the dirt it could [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img]
