Happy Chickens

It actually feels like Spring today! The sun is simply beautiful this morning. Almost all of Mother Nature”s silly white trick of the night before last is melted away, it feels wonderful outside. The sun rise on the frost was gorgeous but I’m still glad that it will soon be gone for another season.

I also know it’s Spring because my Hens are in full out egg laying mode. This morning There were 12 fat eggs piled into 2 nest. One hen was so excited to get outside and enjoy the weather that she laid the 13th egg as she ran out the coop’s chicken door! ~ PLOP ~ right into the mud puddle, lol. She didn’t even stop to check as she normally does, just kept going and started scratching away.

It’s kind of funny that there should be 13 eggs this morning, especially since I have only 11 hens, 1 or 2 of which are old grannies and not particularly fond of laying an egg every day. I’m quite certain the 2 Roos had nothing to do with it. All I can figure is there must have been some midnight gabbing fest going on between a few of the chickies :)

Happy Spring!
