Spring…soon

Katie has finished her dinner and moved onto breakfast, so this is her owner Monica pondering the current lack of Spring.

This is one of our chicks from last year.  We had a broody hen and no rooster, so we bought chicks at the co-op and slipped them under the banty hen.  She accepted and raised them as her own.  We’ve had chicks every spring for the past 6 years, but this spring the coop is full, so no chicks.  Our oldest hen is 8 or 9 years.  She doesn’t lay any more, but is the matriarch of the flock.  They have a coop in a secure former tool shed (with added roosts) so have been safe from predators.  They stay under the bushes when eagles hunt.
