Eight year old Kerys has named the Silver Sebright 'Snowy', and I promised to put photos of her on my blog tonight - of Snowy that is, not Kerys
So here are a few snaps of them out and about in the snow today
It was the first time the new girls have experienced snow- and their reactions were quite funny
At first they did their usual and ran out like children at playtime.
Then they looked rather puzzled and kept lifting up their feet
They started pecking it and eating it - then they moved off onto the gravel
I think they must have found some insects amongst the gravel as they spent ages scratching about on there
Lola, Twiggy and Zola spent at lot of time lifting up their feet.
Soon after I took this photo, they were charging around the garden one after another in a game of chase. Up on the raised beds, across the flower beds, on the strawberry pots - they looked like a gang of delinquents chasing around - but not doing any damage. They didn't want to go into their run this evening, so I left them playing until they went in at dusk. They were out all day and had a great time - and it's lovely to see so many little starfish footprints everywhere!
The older girls stayed in the sunshine, pecking at the gaps in the paving slabs, and NOT eating my newly appeared bulbs all along in front of the patio door!
