It was cold.....
...... Saturday morning! It wasn't supposed to get THAT cold, so the light was not on in the coop for extra warmth. Poor Charlie and the girls! They got an extra ration of oatmeal and raisins for breakfast to warm them up. I let them out in the yard while I cleaned the pen and put more hay down, but they ran back in by themselves when they realized I put the light on in the coop. It works wonders - it takes the horrible chill out.
It started to snow later - didn't amount to much although it made the stairs slippery:
Spring must be coming soon - the first seed catalog arrived!
I cracked open that huge egg Maude made. Yup, it was a double yolker!
Used some of it to glaze the top of an apple pie. I gave the rest to the gang as a treat.
Oh, it was even colder Sunday morning:
