    It's that time of year again to get those sleds out, make some cool snowmen, and throw a few snowballs. But its also that time of year when your flock gets out for the first time and explores that "brand new world of white". So, if it is from the snow you have had, or the snow you have, show us a picture or two of your chickens in the snow!
