    Last year we got our first snow on Nov. 27 2". Right now there is nothing in the forcast. It will be interesting what our chickens do in the snow, last year they were not free ranging.

    Pretty flock! I can't wait to see how mine react to the snow. It won't be to much longer, cold weather is coming.

    We got a skiff last night and when I opened the coop this morning ... nothing ... no chicken flood ... not even a peep (excuse the pun!). The guineas eventually worked up the nerve to step out, and then spent most of the day perched on the fence, the roof, the trees .. anywhere but in the snow. I'm not sure that the chickens ever left their (covered) run. Silly girls. It's gonna be a long and dull winter if they stay "cooped up." [​IMG]

    Quote:Just goes to show ya, the snow is always whiter on the other side of the fence! Cute picture.

    The first time I remember seeing snow, I had to taste it too.
