Eating snow

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Every time I open the coop, one of my frizzles runs over and starts eating snow.  This concerns me because she has fresh water and I'm afraid she will drop her core body temperature and freeze.  Should I be concerned?

I wouldnt think you have anything to worry about. It sounds kinda funny to watch though.

If it aint broke don't try and fix it

I have hatching eggs and or chicks/ducklings available   PM for availability and breeds.

I wouldn't worry to much about it.  Almost all my chickens do the same thing and they are fine.  I work all day and once the water freezes that is what they do to drink.
