    It started snowing a few days ago here and has been pretty constant. I was always told that rheas were hardy and didn't mind too much but here is the proof:

    This was on Friday: Ankle deep

    This was Saturday: Knee deep

    [​IMG]


    And this is today: Butt deep!

    It's still snowing now, so tune in tomorrow to see them up to their necks in it! [​IMG]

    Just looked again - it's a good thing they sink in the snow, otherwise they'd be stepping over the fence!

    THAT would be a merry chase! [​IMG]
