Oh, it was practically summer yesterday.  A high of -1C (30F)!  The girls spent most of the day out of the coop in the run, instead of running in and out of the coop for a quick snack or drink of water.  It was great to look out the window and see them scratching in the dirt.

They also took advantage of the warm weather to take a long-awaited dirt bath.  They look dirtier now, but they must feel cleaner because they were having a great time rolling in the dirt and sand.

Alas, the warm weather did not stay.  By this morning, it was -20C (-4F) again.  Sigh.  At least we had a little break.
