    Today its really nasty snowed a bit last night an its blowing away outside. I went out and cleaned the brooder and took some pictures of my freezing chickens.

    My dog scarlet decided to tag along

    The chilly chicks were looking great even in the cold:

    Thanks Scarlet knows who is who around here she loves spending time with the flock but keeps a weary distance from some of the bigger hens [​IMG] she is "friends" with them and spends allot of time out their since our other dog passed away this summer.
