They Come with the Snow

This handsome fellow and one of his hens took a long, slow stroll around the yard yesterday.  We see them in the fields quite often, he usually has four or five other hens with him as well, but they generally come into the yard after good snows or ice storms.

They know we feed & water birds – our own domestic poultry & fowl, along with all their little wild friends.
