    @ Red Hill Hollow, Thank you! This was taken when I first got them about a month ago! They were trying to stay as far away as possible! They are used to me now, especially with all the treats I give them!

    Nice bunch of chickens. Are they trying to keep warm or did they just gather together to get their picture taken?
