February Snow Event

We are experiencing a nice snow event here on the farm. It has been snowing for three days ¬†and all the animals are doing well. We have to go out three times a day to make sure they have water to drink instead of a solid chunk of ice. It is a new experience for us, not the snow, but to have farm animals to tend to in the snow. We have a chicken tractor in the field with the sheep that we move every day so the chickens have fresh grass and moss to nibble on. However, we have not moved the chicken tractor for a couple of days because the only “dry” area without snow covering the grass is at the back of the chicken tractor. If we move the chicken tractor, the chickens will have to stand in snow all day. So the chicken tractor will have to stay put until the snow melts some.
