We have snow!
Usually, that is what we should expect come winter in these parts, but the past few seasons of cold have turned out to be short of the white stuff. Last week we had about 10 inches and yesterday (another snow day, yahoo!) three more.
Here is a picture of our chickens in the snow:
Sadly, one of our beautiful white cochins bit the dust last week... We believe her demise to have been because of our two very large and rowdy roosters competing for her affections... After the spring foxes, we might change up the dynamics of the coop inhabitants. Only time will tell.
