this brave chicken. She lays light brown eggs.
this lovable chicken character. She lays darker brown eggs that sometimes are speckled.
As soon as the snow started to melt and little patches of ground showed thru, we let the chickens free in the yard - we had to - they were just so excited (re: squawking and pacing the gate) to get out of their winter quarters. They are excellent spring (and incredible autumn!) clean up helpers; finding grubs, flies and larvae, slugs and slug eggs, shredding up leaves, eating tiny seeds and weed sprouts... but I shiver to think what they'd do to the gardens if they had access to them all summer. They are so much fun to watch.
And P.S. I use Instagram now... and it's way too easy to post a picture.
Here it is.
