Spring Chickens

One of my good chicken-raising friends has decided to sell all of her chickens, and offered us first pick. So we now have two new Cochin hens, a Cochin bantam hen, and a golden Campine. Here they are!

April Fools

We've had some strange weather this year, including snow at the end of March. I'm definitely ready for spring! The daffodils are blooming (which the should have done a month or two ago) and the tulips are beginning to poke up out of the ground.

In January, we got some great snow (great for the slushy, non-sticking snow zone where I live). Here are some pictures of our chickens and ducks enjoying themselves (or maybe not so much) in one of the first snows of the new year!
