What chickens think of snow
I'm heading inside to the day quarters.
Isn't it gone yet?

Snow is for eating off the side of the chicken barn.
Yesterday at the first sign of snow, the chickens headed into their daytime hutch. (That's a muddy tarp in front.) They're spending today inside their snow-covered chicken barn. Normally they'd spend some time outside but 26 degrees F is too cold for us all. Snow in November simply isn't supposed to happen around here.
