Merry Christmas!

It's Christmas Eve.  It's all quiet here mostly.  The original version of A Christmas Carol is on tv. One is watching, one is napping, one is reading, and then there is me. The dogs are mostly napping.  The dog and people numbers have doubled for a few days.
Here's a few pictures from Wednesday morning, when the skies were clear and the beauty of the snowfall from the previous night sparkled in all it's glory

In the sheltered areas, much of that snow is still frozen to the branches, four days later.

The hens weren't particularly impressed that morning.

Sorry for the wonky angle, but you can see where I laid down the fibreglass roofing.

A couple of minutes of shovelling took most of the snow off.

I flipped the fibreglass over onto the snow, and voila!  The hens didn't need an invitation, off they went!

The photographer distracted by more beauty!

Down under the trees

Mmm, frozen broccoli leaves!

Today I embarrassed a few hens.

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday, spent with friends and family, two footed and four.
Merry Christmas from all of us at Wyndson Farm.



  1. You are hilarious, putting that trim on some of the hens!
    Have a great time with the extra people and extra pups too!

  2. omg HAHAHAHAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!

  3. Merry Christmas to you Karen & Larry!
    Sure do miss the eggs those hens can give, definitely unique. Haven't found any eggs yet on the island that can match!

  4. Love those Christmas decorated hens! Made me smile! Merry Christmas:)

  5. You are living in a winter wonderland. It was a good idea to flip the panel to get them fresh land. You chickens are so neat. I like their costuming. They didn't look like they minded. I hope you had a Merry Christmas.

  6. Oh Karen, I wanted to get back to your blog before now to wish you all a Merry Christmas. Hope it was perfect in every way. These pictures are amazing and beautiful! Gosh, what a beautiful box of Christmas cards these would make. This is the first year in many that I didn't get to watch, A Christmas Carol. I never could find it on TV. What a lucky bunch of hens you have. All of them look so pretty and healthy, and I love the one ones dressed up for Christmas.

  7. LOL, LOL, your chickens made me laugh so hard!!!
    Happy New Year to you all!
