First Day of Snow

We got our first real snowfall of the season yesterday. I let the hens outside once they'd had a chance to wake up and eat a good breakfast of warm oatmeal.

It was a beautiful winter day under heavy skies, with little to no wind. I had cleared the run of most of the snow and laid some straw out for them to walk on. Everyone came out briefly before deciding it was more comfortable inside the coop.

A few of the more adventurous girls came out periodically throughout the day to enjoy the crisp winter air and explore, but most elected to remain indoors for the day.

All in all, it was a good first day of real winter weather.

Thank you for visiting! I read every note that's left for me after the farm chores are done.
