It has been sunny for the last couple of days which is really a gift. We just don't see the sun in the winter very often. Winters can be very dreary. Unlike the Southwestern Rocky Mountain range which is colder and snowier, but sees the sun more than once. (I was "warned" about this before we actually moved here.) It's been really chilly..... but sunny. The chickens have been reluctant to venture outside the coop. Who wants to get their bare feet all snowy (except a couple of wild ass boys! See post from December 12!)? So I laid out some hay with some cracked corn on top. Now they can scratch and eat a little and dance around all the while soaking up some vitamin D. Ahhh. Sun in winter- quite a treat.
