The chickens don't seem to mind the cold, they're always busy searching the garden for tasty things to eat
These two girls are the ones that have started laying. They've also decided that the middle of Winter is the best time to lose their neck feathers. Maybe I should knit them some scarves ;-)
I think this girl is holding on until Spring before she starts laying. You can see her comb is much smaller than the other girls. She has sensibly kept her feathers. I do love their fluffy feet
We try to keep the feeders filled up for the garden birds at this time of year. The wood pigeons especially are messy eaters so lots gets spilled. The chickens worked this out quite early on so whenever a wood pigeon flies in they run to wait under the feeder in the hopes of getting some of the dropped seeds
I turned the heel on my rainbow socks at the weekend, how perfectly did those stripes work out! I think I'm going to work on these today.
