Birds Enjoying the Weather

27 Dec

The birds have really been enjoying the warm weather.

The peacocks have been out until dark nearly every evening this week.  You can notice the tail is starting to grow.

My chickens have been out quite a bit too.

The hen behind Nugget is my free-range chicken.  She was actually out free-ranging this week.

The geese have been liking it the most though.  Even though I still have one naughty gander. (The other is all threat and no bite.)

With the record warm temperatures on Christmas Day with the long dry stretch, I finally managed to get them a clean pool.

Not that it stayed clean very long.

It looks like they’ll get to keep the pool going for a little while yet.

I have to admit that I’ve enjoyed the warm weather.
