Ice Skating Chickens

On Sunday it was pretty warm out the entire pen was standing water from the snow melt.  The chickens were not impressed with their new swimming pool and didn't really venture out.  On Monday they had themselves a skating rink!  What was standing water the day before had transformed into a thirty foot skating rink!  Between the frozen pen and the ferocious winds the poor things were slipping and sliding everywhere!
While Dr. A thought it was funny (I did not probably because I'm a "mother hen" so to speak (pun intended) when it comes to the chickens) to watching them try to run on the ice. Thankfully they didn't hurt themselves.  Hopefully today it will warm up and get rid of the ice rink!
