Upstate New York has been positively dumped on by snow clouds this week. The chickens have been cooped up for over a week and were starting to get mighty bored. I bought them a flock block, which helped to keep them from picking on each other. They still needed a bit of recreation and fresh air.

Chickens are not very big fans of stepping in cold, wet snow with their dainty little feet. Knowing this, I shoveled out a small patch of the patio so they could come out without getting immediately buried over their heads in 15 inches of snow.

I bribed them out of their warm, dry coop with some black oil sunflower seeds sprinkled onto the ground. They came running and flying out the door in a massive jumble of feathers and feet, gobbling up the treats and soaking up the sun.

I took the opportunity to snap some photos of the flock, focusing mostly on our new members, the Easter Eggers and Bantam Wyandotte.

Nico enjoyed the snow day too, but spent all her time chasing squirrels.

I hope you all enjoyed this photo series. I’ll be sure to snap some new photos after our next foot of snow falls tomorrow.
