SNOWBOARD CHICKEN!!


With freezing rain since early A.M., the chooks refused to see the light of day.
UNTIL...
Around 4:45 P.M. when I went out to do my perfunctory locking of the henhouse door.
There he was,
Albie Darn, I'm a Rooster
Perched on the coop door.
I left him there for another 15 minutes and went back to try to lock him in.
Still perched.
This time, I physically lifted him off the door, hoping against hope he wasn't frozen to it.
Squawking, he resisted ever so slightly, and disappeared into the hen house.
Stay tuned.
I'm certain there's more.


Pin It!

What's that white stuff? I seem to remember it....
I'll probably see a bit myself - 2 weeks in Minnesota in December...How foolish to travel to the frozen north at this time of year...but it seemed such a good idea last summer...
Did he thaw out once he got in with the girls?
