A flurry of activity

Stoical as ever, the flock didn’t seem remotely daunted by the snow this week. Thankfully, the day before the first covering, James had boarded-out the hybrids’ undercover run, which had previously just been surrounded by chicken wire. Now with the added wooden surround and plastic sheeting, it’s provided them with a snug place to shelter from the cold wind. With treats such as cored apples and blocks of corn strung from the twiggy perches, there’s plenty of entertainment, too, so we needn’t worry about them getting bored while the snow prevents them being able to peck and scratch about. Does anyone else have any tips for keeping hens amused in the snow?
