Uhgh Winter Time

It is soooo cold. The hens won't leave the coop and I don't really blame them. Yesterday, I made them some special oatmeal with alfalfa, nuts, corn and seeds. They gobbled it up in a matter of minutes. An hour later, two beautiful eggs were laid. Those were the only two for the day, but I can't be too disappointed, it was really cold. Tomorrow, I'll probably have a few nests full of eggs!

I hope the girls are comfortable. We spent two hours wind proofing, water/snow proofing the run. The waterer is heated so they should have frost-free water as well. I love it when their all puffed up to keep warm. They look twice their size, like short fat turkeys. I'll have to upload a photo of them.
