Waking up to the first snowfall of the season is always exhilarating. When we crawled from our snug little beds on Saturday, 9 inches of snow covered the world outside.
The chickens were as surprised as we were when waking up this morning.
Always anxious to leave the coop for a daily recess, I wondered what the girls would do when first stepping in the cold white stuff. They seem hesitant...
and then turn their tail feathers scurrying back into the coop. What a bunch of chickens!
Just don't hit the Nikon...boys!
Another check of the chickens...
"What's going on here?"
As the days grow shorter, the chickens will soon stop laying eggs for the winter.So far though, they haven't slacked off a bit. Preparing for Thanksgiving, I'm stock piling eggs in the fridge.
Thank you Mother Clucker for this gorgeous fresh egg!
Back to work!
Welcome winter...we can't wait to play in you!
PS...Do you think The Red One sent the snow for my birthday?
