My little guy starts out on his snowshoes but half-way-up there usually hops into the sled with the girls. Surprisingly, even though it takes a good hour to get out the door and to collect the eggs, I have actually enjoyed most days. I get to strap on my snowshoes and be outdoors. The worst part is just getting out the door. Ya know, by the time the second one is all dressed, the first one is undressed again. Gloves need to be put on 5X before we even make it to the chicken coop, and someone always does a face plant in the snow and has a melt down.
Thanks to our 6 chickens, they get us out of the house everyday. It’s not always fun and I don’t always look forward to it, but once we are finished there is nothing like going back inside and warming up. And really, I’m getting one great workout everyday.
