Digging Out of the Snow

The ladies have been stuck in the coop and driving each other crazy!

The thing is I know these ladies better than they know themselves. They act like I’m keeping them prisoner or something! The reality is if I opened that chicken door they would take a step out, stick their neck out, and turn right back around and go back inside. Besides, they are too snooty to get messed up in the snow and mud. We are talking 6 inches of snow and precious little chicken feet here!

So now we have to snow shovel our drive way, our side walks, our path to the coop and NOW we have to shovel snow out of our chicken run! There isn’t enough time in the day to get all of that snow out.

The easiest way to keep our ladies happy is to push a bunch of snow out of the way of the chicken door and build a wall out out of it to keep them from wondering too far. Where we cleared out the snow, we lay down hay to keep those little chicken feet from touching the ice and keeping their little tootsies warm! Nobody wants those precious tootsies to get frost bitten!

Just a few hours of freedom from the coop gave the ladies an attitude adjustment for the better!
