The "girls" prefer summer to winter... because in summer there is grass, and bugs, and interesting places to go scratch about and explore.
Come winter, the chickens tend to retreat into the stable, which is warmer on their scrawny feet.
They were delighted today with the sun streaming into the barn -- a group of the ladies clustered in the doorway of the stall to sunbathe
While back in their heated coop, these chickens decided it was more sociable to just share the nest box, rather than each have their own.
Despite the short days, they are laying well. And of course, now the days get longer!
