Baby, Its Cold Outside
With outside temperatures hovering in the single digits, these Border hens are enjoying a sunbath! They took a cold water bath earlier this morning and now take turns enjoying the warm afternoon sun that shines in one corner of their flight.
They have plenty of places in their cage to get out of the warm sun coming through the window but most sunny days you can find them taking turns sunning themselves and enjoying the warmth.
I have warmed the aviary a bit from a month ago as it is now get down to low 50's at night and up to 55 during the days. A jacket feels good to me as I take care of them, just wish it was warm enough for me to sunbathe with them!
