Warming the Girls

Its flipping cold out there, especially if you’re a chicken and living in a coop!
Today was the girls’ first experience of snow and they weren’t impressed. It took a while to encourage them out and when i did they huddled in a small mass of feathers.
To cheer them up a bit I rushed to the kitchen and rustled up a warm mix of: Pellets, corn, mealworms, celery and corn oil with warm water.
They loved it and were soon back to their happy selves, clucking and scratching round the run.

Yum!
They love it!!

Blackie of course is not so good. She has developed a bad foot and can’t put weight on it. She walks on the wrist of her shank, and keeps overbalancing. I’m thinking of taking her to the vet on Monday….
