The girls had been out free-ranging all morning, but they didn't head to the coop when the snow started blowing in. We had to run around like maniacs in the blowing snow to catch our three hens and put them into their warm coop. The silly birds were hiding in a bush and were covered in snow already. I brushed them off and released them into the warm hen-house with fresh pine shavings. They'll have access to their run until nightfall. I made sure to throw in some extra scratch to help them stay warm tonight.
|The girls are nice and warm.|
