    Oh dear lol well no mine got over it considering how long our winters are they'd have too. Treats? maybe make a path, i sweep back snow ... mine would die for a 32+ day right now we've been brutally cold.

    one of my ladies out in the snow, now i won't say she's super impressed lol but they tackle it.

    You can get them in different colors but in the US there is only lemon cuckoo which isn't very good for autosexing

    She looks like she has a little chicks head on a bigger pullets body. It is a very funny looking picture.

    We just completed our final day 18 candling. I lost one more egg from my eBay shipment, leaving 6 out of 8, and lost one more egg from the "local" Scottsdale breeder's eggs, leaving only 3 eggs out of 12. If all of them hatch from here I'll get 9 chicks. Keeping my fingers crossed! [​IMG]
