    She tried to hide...she didn't want her picture taken...I can't say I blame her, looking that rough and all.
    Yes, that is snow....She's been hiding in the coop a lot.

    I'm amazed how fast a molt overtakes a chicken. It's like all the feathers drop during the night and the pinfeathers grow in.

    Awwwww. Do you ever wonder why they moult in the winter??? Crazy. Yep, when they go through a heavy moult, they drop feathers what seems to be, all at once. I know my girls did this, this year, just a couple months ago. [​IMG]
