    I couldn't remember the name of the guys I've seen that walk like this. DH insists it's Russian Soldiers. Lupin hates snow. He hides in the barn unless it's food or treat time. When he DOES actually come outside, he walks funny. He'll pick his whole foot up to touch his body before putting it back down. Like he's walking in 6 ft deep snow drifts. [​IMG]


    ETA-- None of my other birds walk like that, btw. So I personally think it's hilarious. [​IMG]

    Oh, that's so cute. Funny the response.

    It's like when you put a harness on a cat - they slither along with their belly to the ground, not knowing what to make of the new situation.

    [​IMG] Yeah, Lupin is a riot. He occasionally believes he's a parrot and will ride on your shoulders. Especially if you have food. He's a very comical guy [​IMG]

    Lupin isn't the only one who hates snow. It's official now, that my chickens are not big fans either. And Curious is the worst of the bunch. She flies from whereever she is to me, and then sits on me so she won't have to stand in the snow. She hangs on tight too, not about to put her feet in that cold wet whilte stuff. Here's Curious sitting on my foot. I tried to shake her off, but she wasn't having any of that.

    My chickens fly as far as they can to avoid the snow. They try their best to land in a non-snow zone. [​IMG]
