My Buckeye chickens are happiest when they're roaming the pastures searching for bugs, grass and seeds.
When it snows and temperatures drop, their range shrinks.
Lately they've spent their days with the sheep, who opt to hang out by the barn rather than browse snow-covered pastures.
The chickens search around the hay feeders for seeds and choice alfalfa leaves that might have fallen to the ground.
The sheep while away the afternoons, ruminating and napping in the sun.
The ewes don't seem to mind the resourceful hen who inspects their backs for stray alfalfa leaves.
