Winter Warmth

It’s been a beautiful November – hard frosts in the morning and sunny skies in the afternoon. It’s been so cold that the pumpkin in the chicken run is frozen. Most of the animals take it in stride, but there are two that are already showing full-winter cold weather coping behavior.

Candy has been spending the morning sunbathing at the door of her hutch. It’s her winter place. (Note that we lowered the hutch by a half foot. She’s getting old and I noticed her having a bit of trouble with the steep ramp. Now it’s easier.)

Scooter does his sunbathing inside. We’ll be tripping over him all winter.
