Chickens in the Snow

     We all survived the big Virginia snow of December 2009.  Depending where you were in Virginia, you got anywhere from 14"-24".  The biggest snow we've seen since the early 90s.  It was beautiful! 

     The chickens did just fine.  I wasn't sure if they would have to be cooped up or not but once I put down a bit of fresh straw in the runs, all their apprehension disappeared and they came out to play.  They even seemed to enjoy it.  It has been a bit more work to keep their frozen water replaced quite often but I know warmer days are coming and this too, we'll survive.  

A milestone was recently passed in the chicken kingdom.  All five girls layed on the same day. That hasn't happened before. A very exciting day indeed.
