The photos this week don't really tell the weather tale. It was alternately pleasant and sunny, to freezing cold and rainy and the flock is a little confused. We're all cool with rain, it's snow we dread. We spent several days preparing for snow and biting cold. Sparky (shown above. Black Copper Marans cockerel) kept a close eye on Mr. Chicken Chick as he winterized the run with heavy duty plastic. While he was busy with that project, I spent a significant amount of time writing about winter weather challenges that chicken-keepers face. Check it out here if you haven't already.
