The Girl's First Winter

Today was the first day that the chickens came out into more than a dusting of snow.
Yesterday they chose to stay in their coop during the snowstorm.  

They were a little hesitant to come out at first.


I scattered some scratch around that encouraged them.
They'll get a bigger treat a little later.


Lily thinks it's a good idea to just stay up there and not get her feet wet!!
They have warm water and feed inside their coop.  Their water is kept unfrozen by way of a heated dog bowl and I change it everyday adding to it some electrolytes.
They are giving me beautiful eggs!
