February On The Farm

You never know what winter in Wisconsin will bring. I took these photo's on January 27, a mere two weeks ago. The chickens were happily free ranging. They had their paths around the ice and the minimal snow. 

I didn't realize how much things had changed until looking at these pictures. We have received lots of snow in the last two weeks. One snow alone brought us 6 inches, so we are looking quite a bit more seasonal and snow covered now. 

 The chickens had a nice break though and have been able to stretch their legs. Hoping as the days start to get longer, we will begin to see some eggs from them again. We don't provide heat or light for them, it's all up to Mother Nature, so in the winter eggs are not plentiful!

 While we didn't have a lot of snow up until recent, we did have more than enough ice. This "field road" is so covered in ice, I won't even try walking over it!

Mr.C. is hesitant to go over the ice also :)

Mr. C enjoying the nice day we had. Queen of the farm was near by, but wasn't in the mood to pose for a photo. Maybe next time!

Be warm my friends!


  1. Those farm pictures just warmed my heart :-)) Have a marvelous week ahead, Kris!

  2. Your chickens are so pretty. They look like they should pose for an artist to paint them. I think our winter is about over. We will still be cold in the mornings and close to 70 by noon. I saw a tree that had budded out. I'm not ready to plant anything yet, but I'm thinking about it. Thanks for sharing. I made your warm chile. Yummy!

    Wishes for tasty dishes,

  3. The ladies are looking great! That ice makes me nervous just looking at the pictures though... the older I get the more sure I am that I'll fall! ;-) I'm ready for warmer weather and longer days too!

  4. Thank you for sharing photos of your chickens, I always enjoy seeing them, they are so pretty.
    Have a great week, Kris! I am starting to get Spring Fever! Help!!

  5. Nice that the chickens had a break from the winter snows. Can't say as I blame Mr. C for not wanting to walk on the ice. I'm not so keen on ice either. Although we can't complain as our winter has really not been that bad.

  6. Wow, I just love farm photos! The chickens are very photogenic! I hate ice - too risky for me.

  7. What sweet pictures, my friend! Those chickens are just too cute!

    Thank you for the lovely visit to my was so nice to hear from you! Hugs!

  8. It is nice that your chics have different colors, makes for great photos :-) Stay warm!

  9. The weather is really funny.. in the middle of January it became hot in California, now we are shivering even with heather.. :(
