    I wonder how my bird brains will do in the snow. They're scared of the rain! Good luck with the 'snow birds'.

    My crazy birds play in the rain, we don't get enough snow to worry about.

    [​IMG] It stopped snowing, and my stupid oak trees not only blocked snow from getting on my yard, water dripped off of my oaks, causing my snow to melt. I feel like such a little kid! I love the snow! I always have and I always will. I really wasn't expecting this. After dinner I went on a stroll through the neighborhood. It was just lovely! All my neighbors had about an inch of snow, since not many of them have big trees blocking/melting. [​IMG] TRAFFIC TOMMOROW IS GOING TO BE TERRIBLE!

    Get ready for the "first snow traffic " . If it's anything like it is here (Montana ) all the idiots will be doing 35 mph even when there's no snow on the highway . I knew it was coming though , they were only doing 55mph in a 70 in the summer . God help the transplants !!![​IMG]

    People in Oregon can't drive in the rain. The snow, the ice or the bright sunshine. [​IMG]

    And when there is NO snow and no rain? I have one hen who will go outside no matter what the whether and my rooster and both geese could care less... they also are outside living it up; but my other hens curl up in the corner of the second story in the coop and hide. I have put them outside but [​IMG]it lasts maybe 10 minutes and off to the coop they run...... Don't they NEED to be outside being CHICKENS!? i am constantly learning but feel so frustrated right now :( I have come to love my birds.... one of the hens even jumps into my arms almost daily or runs to me and stares up until I pick her up.... I just want to make sure I am doing the right thing for them ya know?
