I know, your all wondering… how are the girls? Are they cold? What are they doing?
I’m asked this so often, I thought that today would be the perfect day to talk about it.
It’s this cold out today! seriously cold…
Win and I took a walk down to check on the chickens. They were right there, greeting us like they always do.
I didn’t have a treat handy, but I’ll find something to take down later. This is their hopeful scramble… Dad is much better at remembering to take them things. Actually, he probably would have taken them homemade oatmeal or something…
Oreo didn’t care if I was there, she was staying inside. She’s one of our original hens. I think she arrived in 2007, our first chicken year.
There’s a heater.
Here’s their friend Zoe. She has a very nice hutch but she lives in the coop when it’s super cold out
They still lay eggs, at a slower rate, but it happens. We do put a light on for a little while at night to prolong their day time just a bit. The production slows down but it doesn’t quite stop completely.
They also take turns sitting in this chair.
and enjoying the view.
sounds good to me :)
Stay warm today!
