The snow is beautiful. And the tracks in the snow provide insight as to the creatures of the night that visit. At 4-7 degrees it is too cold for the dogs to be out, but not too cold for poultry hungry critters.
The laying hens stay on their roost. This flock hates walking in the snow.
The last few broilers are well under cover.
The snow sparkles in the sunrise. This will happen for another week at least, as the temperatures are not going beyond freezing anytime soon.
Checking out the tracks in the snow, hoping that most belong to humans and our own dogs.
