Sunny And Cold

The snow has melted, but it's still cold. The chickens all look so pretty in their winter fluffy feathers. I bundled up to make the trek out to the coop to check for eggs.

As soon as the chickens heard the screen door close they hurried to meet me and then stopped to give me the eye... food? Nope. No food... no plastic bag with veggies in sight. Smart chickens. When they saw there was no treats they scurried away to resume turning over the forest floor.

I gave them some broccoli in the afternoon.

Morgan did a lot of barking today at something. She is even barking in her sleep.

Lots of stuff that needs doing outside, but it is still too cold for me to spend time outside. I've been watching movies on YouTube and putting together quilt blocks. Fun.

Hi Callie!
Sorry it's been so long since I've left a comment. Just so busy!

I'm with you - stay inside and work on a fun project! It's been very cold here this winter and I'm not much of a cold weather person, so, I've been working on little projects around the house when time allows!

Stay warm! Hopefully you can watch chicken t.v. from one of your windows!

I just found your blog, and it is so neat!!! I love chickens, I have always wanted some. I have five acres of land, but coyotes live there, and I wouldn't want my chickens to be eaten. Yours are just so cute!
