Do Chickens Like Snow?
Nope, not really.
Pepper, the bantam rooster, bravely flew out to the snow covered perch. Surprised by the snow, he danced from foot to foot like a cat on a hot tin roof. The Banty’s are spending a lot of time on their perch now that the snow has arrived.
The Girls and The Colonel refused to come outside at all. They looked longingly at their run from the safety of the coop until Paul spread straw out on the snow. Can’t say I blame them!
