    Hey -- anyone got some snowy hens out there? I took these pics after a snowstorm - and then the sun came out -- hens were happy.

    This is Olaf and his harem of hens.

    This is their new portico -- which I added just before winter set in hard. The tarps are blocking the west and north wind - leaving an open sunny exposure -- for winter tanning.

    This is the view from the house -- sun setting over the coop.

    I'm loving your coop. Think it's the most "pleasing" one I've seen yet. I like the thoughtfulness of your design, including the covered sheds for your snow. Great job!

    And, I agree: your flock is a pretty mix of birds.

    Thanks for sharing:)

    Gorgeous set up and beautiful birds. They do look very happy and healthy. Thanks for sharing your pics. Are those christmas lights on the coop. I thought I was the only one that did that?

    Hey -- I'm liking that poultry pool you got there -- but where are the Christmas lights?? Wouldn't be Christmas without lights... even the plug in pink flamingos would work.

    We're getting another 12" of snow today!!!!
