The only place there was no snow was under a very wide eave that is over a garden bed under the bathroom window...where the flock liked to congregate and take dustbaths in the winter. Once I let them out of their coop.They are smart and I am lazy. It is a positive correlation. The smarter they get, the lazier I can be...

 

I also flung the FF out the same window. And I lowered fresh water in a bucket.

 

It was a cold winter.:hide

I don't blame you! My coop and run are too far from my house for me to be that lazy, and there are certainly days when the weather is nasty out that I wish I could just open a window and fling food out and call it good. lol.png

Japanese, OEG, Sebright, Brahma, Cochin, Rosecomb, and Plymouth Rock bantams.

Hilarious!

I love it!

 

 

Lazy...I recently read about fermenting the alfalfa cubes for chickens...I already buy them and feed them to my horses so...

 

I figured why not ferment some for my girls too.

I've been too lazy lately..just "started" them this afternoon.

Someday, in another world where I have money, I want to have a coop that has a covered walkway to the coop so that chicken runs in -30c doesn't feel so bad.

Or you could put those youngens to work...have them build you a bear hide covered bridge to the coop.

I'd still need a covered walkway, only it'd need AC too. sickbyc.gif
