This is our first winter with our chickens. They are almost old enough to start laying, and the kiddos can’t wait. Chuck has built a sweet, cozy coop for our girls, but surprisingly they prefer to play outside in the cold.
Their run is covered so most of the snow stays out of the actual run, but the girls don’t seem to mind the snow at all.
Annika love looking after the girls, but Chippy is her favorite. I love this photo!
The girls love these natural roosts. The kids have to go out every night to put the hens to bed. They are always cuddled up on this roost braving the cold. We find it intriguing that they prefer to be outside over in the heated coop.
Chippy is part of our home. Yes that is her in front of a Christmas tree in our living room. Kaleb did not want her to miss out on the gingerbread decorating party. Ha! I guess if your dog or cat can join in on family fun, why not the kids chickens right?
