Kernel, you make my life intresting

This morning I went out to the chicken coop with warm water I found that Kernel had slept on the water dish and now his tail was full of ice chunks.
Since he has been sleeping on the water a lot (I'm going to have to work something up to stop this) I decided not just to bring him inside and melt the ice, but to cut of the feathers covered in ice. Hopefully cutting them off will stop him from getting soaked again.

Laying again!

These morning when I hauled water out to the chickens guess what was in the nesting box? An egg! Unfortunately something had chipped the shell exposing the membrane (and no it wasn't caused by freezing), so this afternoon I run out to find my clean faced White Leghorn/Easter Egger cross in the the center nest of the bottom row of nesting boxes.

After a little straining on her part out pops this beauty!
So we are back in business!
