It snowed today! But this was a rare snow for Portland: dry, very cold, and very windy. The chickens handled it admirably, huddling around their water trough and drinking gladly as we filled it again and again with steaming tea kettle-fulls of hot water. Some of the girls just refused to come outside at all, it was so cold and windy. As for us, we did go outside-- just long enough to get some photos to share.
