White Hen Ventures Out

I haven’t even bothered to open the chicken coop.  It’s too cold and the hens usually don’t come out when there’s snow on the ground.

But yesterday the sun was so warm, I left the door open.

The white hen immediately came out on the roost and hopped onto the ground.  I sprinkled some bird seed and by the time I got my iPhone out to take a picture the hen was heading back into the coop.

Even with feathers on her feet, it’s too cold for her.  Maybe the hens and Gus need booties.

  1. This photo, with that big white fluffy bottom is too cute.

    I have seen photos of chickens wearing the chicken equivalent of knit gloves. I just can’t imagine what it took to get the chickens actually in them!

  2. Ha! Did you see my little sketch of a bird with toeless foot gloves? I guess I’ll work on some chicken leg warmers next 😉 and yes, it’s ridiculously cold.
