Snow Chickens

It has been very snowy this week, which is very unusual for Bristol. The children have loved it, the chickens have seemed a little confused! Dopey has (typically) chosen this week to begin moulting, which seems highly stupid - but fairly typical for her! Fortunately Honey, Speckeldy Selina and Ginger all appear to be nicely refeathered, and Snowdrop and Smokey are too young to moult. But they all seem to be coping well with the cold weather and I am giving them extra corn to keep them warm, especially at night - tonight is forecast to be -5!

A couple of pictures - firstly, chickens in the snow, and then a non-chicken photo!
