    (pics taken on my cell phone at 7a... sorry about the quality!)

    I physically took my chickens out of the coop this morning one by one and showed them the snow. Gwen was first. She did not like it. She did not want to get off my arm. Even Nugget, my skittish RIR, did not want to be put down.

    Gwen would not get off my arm. She is the bravest, though, and eventually ventured out into the yard on her own.

    Tribble REALLY doesn't like the snow - she's too short! I put her down in it and she didn't move.

    Dumpling & Nugget don't like it. They didn't want to move, either.

    I love watching their first snow experience. They act like it's toxic waste or something. [​IMG]

    Quote:Yes, the skidding stops as they plummet down the gangplank in the morning. So funny.

    Here's Gwen with DBF, the only girl to get coerced into the snow.

    Look at all the snow she got on her:

  7. Mine aren't interested in going out into the snow really, but if i make them a few snowballs to put in their run, they peck those to bits.
