We are experiencing a bit of snow at the moment. Not lots, just about 2cm though it is cold enough for it to lie rather than melt. The ducks are quite happy with it but the chickens are not so impressed.
4 of our hens roost in a tree overnight and as they emerged from the branches yesterday morning, they looked in disbelief at the white landscape around them. We have not had any significant quantity of snow for 2 years so for most of our poultry, this is a new experience. The hens sat on the goat paddock fence for some time before they decided to get down to feed. Strange new world for them!
