I was totally indulgent this AM..it was beyond cold, more like frostbite temps, so I did not head out to feed until 11. The sun was glistening on the snow. Reflecting little diamond like glows..that blind you! Snow blind is indeed a real thing. I was going to repeat yesterday , feed & keep them in, but one lil rebel hen had other ideas! She dashed out like an escaping prisoner, several others decided to break out too. I figured if ya want out that bad..go for it! The geese were honking to be set free , so opened their area. They did smooth a nice path for me to use this afternoon to close them back up. Gathered a half dozen eggs from under grumpy red hen. They were like cuddly warm I wanted just hold them to warm my fingers😁
This PM Molly chased snowballs. She watches as I make them, then takes off in a run. She goes where they land, sniffs then heads back. Only once did she try to pick one up, then never again!
Now a cozy fire & a lap full of Littles to wrap up a good but chilly day. Nite Ya'al.
