    [​IMG] Snowball was lucky. [​IMG] Mulan, not so much. Silly chicken, hope she stays warm tonight.

  2. My chickens walk around in the rain, too. They complain to me as if I am supposed to turn off the waterworks but they don't run for cover.

    Hey there! This is off on a tangent but, is the ear color really blue, or is it dyed to be that way? I saw a roo with bright purple earlobes at the fair this summer, and have been wondering ever since. Beautiful birds, BTW!

    [​IMG] Our three silkie youngsters were out in the rain today, they looked awful, but I guess they were ok! They were scratching around and enjoying themselves... [​IMG]

    Here in Southern California we don't get a lot of rain but I love it when we do! My sillkies get dreadlocks after eating yogurt & watermelon all summer. When it rains they get their "hair washed" and look so much better!

    I think the silkies look hilarious when they get wet. My son says that they have "liberty spikes"! Thanks for sharing.
