Frost on the lettuce

It's has been quite chilly the past few days.  This morning the lettuce was frosty. 
I let the chickens out of their coop and they roamed the garden, munching on lettuce, carrot and beet tops and bugs...
See how scrawny Cinnamon looks now that she's lost so many feathers?
 Velvet our kitty also enjoyed the cold morning and sunshine.
So funny how Pepper has just 1 tail long feather left.
 We got some slushy snow yesterday (that is NOT dandruff...ha ha ha):
P.S. I awoke with a start at 12 midnight to a lot of squawking and am now wondering if something is bothering the chickens (besides moulting), I looked around, didn't see anything, and in the morning I spent a lot of time with them, while the roamed the garden and all seems fine, thankfully.

Frost already! It's been a warm autumn here so far - I'mready for crisp weather. Love the colours of your lettuces, and the folds and edges of the leaves outlined so beautifully by the frost.
