Winter at the Hill

Brr!! Last night we got the first flurry of the season. Nothing stuck, but it was pretty for the little bit it came down. Now, I was born in Florida, but raised in Ohio...so I hate snow.. but unfortunately, living in Ohio and now Missouri, I'm used to it. I guess it's just in my blood to hate the cold!!

The animals are all dealing with the winter in there own special ways :

Roxie likes to stay inside and lounge on her blanket  ( She is so very very spoiled lol)

The Ladies like the cold, as long as they have scratch grains!! ( they are also so very very spoiled!)

and my little fluffy butt, Elvis, also doesn't mind the cold. He is a bantam cochin and he has a special job in the flock... he is the protector of the eggs... it is so cute!! Sometimes he will even lay beside the hens as they lay the eggs.. then he sits with the eggs until we collect them! What a gentleman!!


  1. Gorgeous birds! Elvis sounds like a great protector!

  2. Elvis is gorgeous! We definitely have plenty of wood in the stove tonight. Brrr... -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

  3. Awww, I've never heard of a rooster sitting by his hens while they lay their eggs! That is so sweet. Our roosters are nothing like that haha. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier! I'm following you now, too :)
