The birds have been all cooped up recently. But when I’m home I like to give them a chance to get out and stretch their legs.
The trick is, they don’t so much WANT to stretch their legs.
Because then their legs end up in the cold snow. Better to stick to the grass… My new rooster isn’t so afraid of the snow. The old one just stayed in the coop and so the hens stuck near him. Myles is much better about leading the flock out into the snow.
