Well we had about an inch of snow covering the chicken run this morning (& more is falling). When I went to let my Silkcos (Silkie/Cochins) out, they stood in the doorway of their cage & stretched their necks w-a-y out they looked to the right, they looked to the left & then just sat there thinking....what the heck is that white stuff? Finally one of the roos decided to go 1st. He flew out to the run but he thought, oh no! I can't touch the ground! He tried landing in the chain link fence but realized he couldn't do that so he dropped to the ground & stood there looking at his feet. Once he realized it was ok, he took off scratching for food. When the others saw he made it, a few more tried, then my last one finally got the courage up & took off but landed on a cement block that was stood upright & she sat there for about 15 minutes. Once I brought out their morning treats, she hopped down & never thought twice about the snow again. It was very funny to watch their 1st reaction to snow. Anyone else have any funny stories about snow & their chickens?
