    It was nice yesterday.. +5 Celsius, so I forced my flock to get some fresh air. They did not want to, but it was so sunny and the snow was melting! [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    You has to be kidding.. No way am I goin' out in that snow!

    [​IMG]
    She wasn't kidding.. How dare she do this to me!?

    [​IMG] They all looked so horrified.

    [​IMG]
    Jagger tried to man up, but he was as nervous about the white stuff as the girls were.

    [​IMG]
    He looked around and quickly ran back inside.

    [​IMG]
    Penny was the first one to cross the threshold without intimidation on my part. [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Treats were thrown out into the snow. Penny loves treats [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    So does the dog, Koda

    [​IMG]
    Everyone gathered by the door watching Penny to make sure she wouldn't die from being in the snow.. Snow can kill you, ya know!

    [​IMG]
    Ruth didn't seem to mind it. He wanted the chickens to come out and play.

    [​IMG]
    Harriet wanted out, but the others kept blocking her pathway.

    [​IMG]
    McDonalds was the only one allowed to stay indoors. It was egg time after all.

    [​IMG]
    Macy finally went outside after some coercing. [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Chloe watched over the ducks.

    [​IMG]
    You can't make me do it! I will not go outside!

    [​IMG]
    I did it.. I brought both boys outside. They were the last to go out. So much for protecting their girls!

    [​IMG]
    After they all were out, they stayed out until dark! The snow was gone when I woke up this morning, so I'm sure they are enjoying themselves.

    Time required to kick everyone outside: 15 minutes. Food used to coerce: Christmas leftovers. Look of terror on Jagger's face: Priceless.

    I Absolutely LOVE the picture of Jagger with the wind blowing at his neck. I seriously could frame this and put it in my bathroom when I start the redecorating. He just gave me the inspiration to do my bathroom with pictures of chickens I find on this site (With the owners permission of course). Would you mind if I copied the picture so I can print it and put it in a frame?

    Evan thought it was much to cold to be outside, their coop is heated and stays warmer then my bedroom in the winter! lol

    I like your variety! My chickens were terrified of snow last year....It was SOOO DEEP! I literally had to bring down the little lawn tractor plow, and plow out a place for them to range. I had a NHR get stuck in the snow, and I had to rescue her.......They preferred to stay inside the coop (which is OK because it's quite large and the attached run is covered too, giving them plenty of room). I would entice them out with scratch grains though.....
