We got our first real snow of the winter yesterday! The chickens are not happy about it at all - they've stayed in the coop since it started accumulating. Hopefully, they'll venture out at least a little bit today. We've been lucky, with such a mild November, that they've been able to keep foraging and grazing so late into the year. Once the ground freezes and the snow sticks, their diet becomes much less interesting. We feed them some of our kitchen scraps, which they really enjoy (they especially like corn bread and kale), and we'll grow some sprouts for them so that they have good green food all winter, but they'll be lacking in bugs and grass, which they definitely love. They like their grain pretty well, too, though - I don't think they're too upset.
