Whoa, big winter storm! Fortunately, we had nowhere we had to go today so we could sit gazing out the windows into the opaque white mist as the drifts grew.
I take that back, I did have to go out to visit the chickens and make sure they were all okay. They were not interested in leaving the coop, even to gobble up the kitchen scraps I’d sprinkled into their run. I noticed yesterday that the rooster stood with one foot curled up close to his undercarriage so he must not be too happy with the weather. I read that I need to apply some Vaseline to his comb and wattles so they don’t get frostbite. I haven’t tried it yet, and I am wondering if it is possible to get ahold of him to execute the maneuver. This might be video-worthy.
