Happy Spring

What a gorgeous sunny weekend we had; still on the cool side but beautiful. To celebrate the first day of Spring we let the chickens roam around outside their run... for the first time ever !!! they had fun and did'nt want to come back in. I had to run around and catch them one by one.

Our chickens have their own paddock but that wasn't good enough for the spoiled ladies. We ended up cutting a small entrance in the fence so that they can range around in the much bigger goats paddock too! Since the snow has gone and they have started free ranging again, I have noticed how almost orange their yolks have gone!

The girls look mighty happy pecking around , bet they didn't want to go back in. My chickens have been confined to their chicken run since I planted my cold weather crops , feel so bad for them. I go out each day , gather chickweed and grass and throw it to them. Sometimes I let them free range a hour or so in the evenings if I have time to watch the garden.

Happy Spring !!
