Snow Dogs

Our boys love the snow. Especially Chase… Chase would stay out in the snow with us as long as we would let him. But usually we make him go in every so often as his poor paws gets caked with snow so we make him go in to warm up. In the 3 feet of snow we had a couple weeks ago it was a … Read More Snow Dogs

Helpers

When it is snowy, icy, or windy we check on the chickens a lot as they are usually inside their run. We are making sure they have food, water, and their laying boxes are clean. We also collect the eggs. So when we go outside we have a couple of helpers who go with us. Chase is our biggest helper. He is always up … Read More Helpers

Birds in the Snow

Our birds have been enjoying our bird feeders that hubby has been trying to keep full. They have been on the feeders and under them where they had dropped some of the seeds. We have had different kinds of birds, but mostly these small little birds and robins. They also have been under some of the trees I think eating berries and things that … Read More Birds in the Snow

Chickens in the Snow

I had a comment about chickens in the snow on my last post that inspired me to share about my snow dare devils. I know most chickens will avoid the snow and not even think about going out in it. I have a couple of chickens who take the risks even in the 3 feet of snow they had to get out… And take a … Read More Chickens in the Snow

Snow Chickens

Yesterday it snowed quite a bit and today the ice and icy rain is making everything a slick mess. The dogs were slipping and sliding all around like they were on a ice rink. It made me feel bad they were slipping, but it was cute to see them try to stay upright. The chickens are staying in their coop/run again today. They have a … Read More Snow Chickens

Snow Home

We ended up getting 5 or 6 more inches of snow today. It was a pretty snow that came down hard at times and other times fell in big steady flaks, but was light and calming. Hubby and I had off and had a little time to go for a drive as we had to get chicken feed from the feed store and pick … Read More Snow Home

More Snow?

Weather man said we may get more snow tonight and tomorrow… we still have snow from the last 3 feet. I know that’s not a lot compared to what some other Midwest states and other places get, but it’s a lot for us. Anyways, the new snow forecast reminded me I promised to share more snow pictures with you from the last snow so … Read More More Snow?

Snow Birthday

Every year it seems on hubbys birthday it snows. This year it was no different as I had told you in my last post. It started snowing Friday mid day and didn’t stop till sometime early Sunday morning. 3ft in total with some drifts that went taller. On Saturday we started snow blowing and shoveling. The snow was going sideways, but we knew if … Read More Snow Birthday

Birthday Snow

Its been a snowy weekend here and we are clearing out still (more on this later). In the mean time before I post on the snow I wanted to write a special post for my hubby. The boys and I wanted to let everyone know what a good worker, daddy, and hubby he is and how many happy wishes we have for his birthday … Read More Birthday Snow

First Day of Spring… or was it?

On the official first day of spring it looked like this at my house… And the snow just kept coming down, until poor Chase had a hard time getting around… But finally it looks like this week spring is defeating winter as there are buds on the tree and a flower or two blooming. Its still cold, but warming up. I can’t wait for … Read More First Day of Spring… or was it?

Chickens and Snow

We have had more snow the past couple of days and I have been trying to keep up with the animals. There are some things I have learned about chicken keeping in the snow, so I thought I would share some of them. You may know some (or all) of them, but maybe you will learn something new 🙂 1. Chickens don’t like to … Read More Chickens and Snow

Snow, Dogs, Birds, and Chickens

Didn’t get as much snow today as they originally predicted, but it snowed most of the day lightly. When I got home from work we took the boys outside to play and help us get the chickens ready for the snow that started around 6 tonight. The chicken water tank was frozen over. Luckily the one inside the coop is holding up well and … Read More Snow, Dogs, Birds, and Chickens
