One Legged Chickens

We've woken up this morning to our first really hard frost here on the farm. 

The chickens are not amused, they poured out of their nice warm henhouses, to a white frosty world, where the ground was hard and horribly cold.  After feeding and having a run round and generally a good complain to each other, they are stood around like well feathered flamingos.  After all why get two feet cold when you can stand on just one!!

An occasional forray to the food hopper means you have to use both for a while ....

.... but you can always dash back to the nice clean, warm house and thaw one of them out again.

And when Mum brings you more warm water ........ why wait for it to be poured into the drinkers, simply drink straight from the bucket and warm your little tummy....... maybe a teabag would make it even better!!

Hope your day if not warmer, is a least as cosy as you can make it.

  1. Too cute! I'd just write the day off myself and go back into the coop ;)

  2. I had no idea chickens did this, so cute :) x x x x

  3. My pigeons do that too...except they are indoors, in a heated room...AND I give them warm water. Do you think they are spoiled?!
