    See the snow falling?
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Pixie is out & does not like it.
    [​IMG]

    She flies back to enclosed run & gives me a butt shot.
    [​IMG]

    Little Silk is thinking about it.
    [​IMG]

    Next Day: While I am scooping the coop & raking the run
    (see yellow Tidy Cats bucket in background?)
    Pixie & Dust survey the damage.

    [​IMG]

    Millie is not impressed.
    [​IMG]

    Big Silk aka Ms. Independent does not care. She flies the coop.
    [​IMG]

    The Millies cannot believe it! They just watch her from above.
    [​IMG]

    Big Silk strutting her stuff.
    [​IMG]

    Pixie remembers yesterday & warns Little Silk to "Don't do it!"
    [​IMG]

    Big Silk continues to strut.
    Flamboyantly flaunting the fact that the snow does not bother her one bit.

    [​IMG]

    Little Silk does not appreciate the taunting.
    [​IMG]

    Dust flies back to the enclosed run to inquire why Pixie as hopped back in.
    Little Silk is still undecided.

    [​IMG]

    Dust asks Pixie why she is not coming out to play.
    Little Silk continues to weigh her options.
    Stay here & be taunted or jump down & give Big Silk the what for.
    Millie is enjoying the show.

    [​IMG]

    Jumping down it is! Big Silk here I come!
    [​IMG]

    "Well, look at that," Dust tells Pixie. "Little Silk is on the move. The small one is braver than you!"
    Milles scoots away.

    [​IMG]

    Little Silk finds Big Silk & Dust jumps down to referee.
    [​IMG]

    "Are you sure you want to get in the middle of that?" asked Pixie.
    [​IMG]
    Little Silk stares at Big Silk's head real hard. To peck or not to peck?
    [​IMG]

    "Don't even think about it," barks Big Silk. Little Silk looks away. "Who me?" asks Little Silk sheepishly. "I wasn't going to do anything."
    [​IMG]

    Now we are not talking to each other.
    [​IMG]

    Oh, man. What to do what to do.
    [​IMG]

    I think I can. I think I can.
    [​IMG]

    Millie watches Pixie throw a conniption fit on whether or not to jump down.
    [​IMG]

    Silly chicken. Let me show you how it is done.
    [​IMG]
    "See, here I go" Millie says to Pixie.
    [​IMG]

    Chicken prints.
    [​IMG]

    "...or maybe not."
    [​IMG]

    Chicken prints.
    [​IMG]
    Chicken prints.
    [​IMG]

    And more chicken prints.
    [​IMG]

    Every chicken is waiting on Pixie.
    [​IMG]

    And they continue to wait.
    [​IMG]

    Then they all decide that Pixie is on her own. Enough waiting.
    [​IMG]

    Let's eat!
    [​IMG]

    Pixie if you do not hurry up you are not going to get any grain.
    [​IMG]

    That does it! Pixie flies out and runs every chicken off. My grain!
    [​IMG]

    Dust is the first chicken to return for her portion.
    [​IMG]

    Then they all return.
