22nd December

We have had the most horrendous weather.  Tempretures of  -19 and lots of snow.  Its gone on for a few weeks now, and everyone is fed up with it.  At least we'll get a white Christmas.
The girls are coping well with the cold and snow.  The omlet cube is warm when I check for eggs first thing, and they all tumble out for their breakfast of porrige in warm water, layers pellets mixed in with a few mealworms on top - yum!
They did sit on top of the dust bath keeping their feet warm a few times.
The tempretures are improving a bit, its just 0 degrees at the moment.  The girls water has frozen a few times, and when that happens they eat the snow!

11th December.

The girls are all well at the moment.  Clara was a bit down last week, but she's moulting, and has picked up,though I dont thinks shes laying any eggs.
I put up the netting today and let them out on the grass.  They had a lovely time.  I forgot to open the coop door when I'd finished cleaning, and had to help them into bed!  Good night Girls.
Clara enjoying the grass.


Clarice and the girls.
