Baby, It's Cold Outside.

The cold wind doth blow, and we don't have snow.
But the chickens may just freeze, poor things!
Quick, run to the coop, (I've cleaned all the poop),
And hide your heads under your wings, poor things!*

I let the girls out today, so they might get a little bit of exercise. Well, exercise they did! It was 30 degrees today, and the wind made it feel much colder. What can a hen to do to stay warm? Run like a chicken with..... Um, well, you know.
Unless, of course, you are Flora. Then you slip into something a bit more stylish and seasonal.

What am I going to do with her?

I think Flora is so cute! Maybe she needs to be the centerpiece on your Christmas dinner table, eh?
