Urgent help needed (goats and chickens)
I'm taking care of my neighbors goats and chickens and I'm in a bind. I'm basically supposed to feed them and make sure they have water. Unfortunately we recently got hit by a somewhat major snow/ice storm. I'm concerned about their safety. I was given a cell phone to call in case of any problems but no ones picking up so I've turned to this forum. Here's a few questions I have:
Will the goats be fine outside even if its over six inches of snow, below freezing temps, and really icy at night?
The chickens get locked into an enclosed little house at night. Since they are so small will they be alright even if the snow is almost as tall as them? Will they still be able to get to their food and water?
Any help would be greatly appreciated! These animals are basically pets and I'm a bit worried about them. :(
