Chickens & Winter

This is mostly going to be pictures about the chickens.

They had been cooped up for a good 2 weeks or so at this point,

and they all needed out of the coop for a dirt bath and some exercise and fresh air.

The guineas braved the cold stuff and went under the coop first.

Then the chickens decided to follow.  They loved it.

They LOVED the dirt bath they all got that day!

Funny how getting bathed in dirt makes them look cleaner somehow.

It’s also good to keep the bugs away.

Yep, he decided to trek across the snow and his girls followed him.

It was really cute! 🙂

I can only imagine how COLD that is on their little feet!

My feet were freezing inside my boots and I had socks on too!

Shoe finally got to get a dirt bath.

Patch always chased him away, so when he lead the girls away,

Shoe took his opportunity.
