2012 - Mild Winter

After worrying a bit this summer of how well our Girls would take to the snow drifts and frigid temps we have been known for in past years, I sit here writing this on January 1, 2012 with a high temperature today of 52 F!  January!  Temps in the fifties!  Needless to say, so far they are handling "Winter" just fine (though we do have a high wind warning, and snow may arrive by Tuesday). There was a day last week which was frigid for about 10-12 hrs.  It was 11 degrees and those Girls were NOT about to leave their cozy shack (and people call chickens stupid). Today though, they pranced about, playing with each other, running up and down over hill and dale. I took the time to snap a couple of shots.

Our Silver Laced Wyandottes are good layers,
and the most daring & inquisitive of the flock too.
Oprah is so named for her bold nature and intelligence, and
that little bit of "bling".  I like to think she has
 chicken "life classes" in the hen house.
