    Well, today the weather decided to give us a break! The chickens were ever too happy to be out and free in their yard.

    However, they dared not go onto that white stuff...

    [​IMG]

    ...they all walked single file within the paths shoveled JUST for them!

    The roosters started to fight each other. Silly boys...they think it's Spring! Wait until tonight when they freeze their little toushes...

    Pavarotti (the new cockrel) was behaved today. He even tried to mount a few of the girls and crowed to his heart's content...

    Alas, though the temperature is NOW a frighteningly 17 degrees from what was a pleasant 35 earlier today, all in all...it was a good day. [​IMG]

    Peace-

    PS Thanks for stopping by!

    I love the pics! The chickens may not like the snow but they sure are cute out there on that path surrounded by it. Thanks for sharing the pics.

    Thanks! I hated to see the snow melting but, I know they loved it. The roos would start a fight and one would get chased to the snow and the hens would just crane their necks...looking at the errant roo. A few would venture out and hop-hoppity-hop right back to the dirt path! LOL! I felt bad for the roo though...eventually, the other (menacing) roo would walk off and the snow roo would jump back on the dirt path.

    Boys will be boys!

    I hear that, though we're getting some snow this Weds/Thurs, it is going to be quite pleasant the next couple of days. Yay!

    Peace-

    Quote:OH that! I didn't notice that. It's the door that leads to the BIG barn next door. We hardly ever use it. It's usually blocked off. I am thinking of painting the coops that color...what you think?

    Peace-

    My vote is yes. My first coop was bright spring green with a floor painted that color blue!

    Thanks for sharing the pics. That is so funny how they would only walk on the cleared path. Very cute!
