Our Farm Emergency Plan In Action

When we applied to become an Animal Welfare Approved farm, one of the requirements was to document a farm emergency plan.  It seemed a bit much for a couple who considers themselves resourceful and who spent 10 years in the fire service but it was required so we did it.  As it turns out, when we came in from chores this morning we discovered we’d lost power.  It probably has something to do with the two inches of rain we’ve had in the past few hours.  At any rate, the house has a generator and the barn doesn’t and that’s where our brooder is.  So we ran out and put them in a box, grabbed an extra chicken light (you all have an extra one, right?) and brought them in the house.  Yes, that’s a toilet in the photo.  They were cozy in our spare bathroom with the door closed to keep the cat out!
