A sign of spring

After months of not getting any fresh eggs out of our young chickens, I remembered last night to tell Tyler to check for eggs....




I'm so glad he did. Spring may be coming after all!


Too bad I didn't remember to tell him to check before the -3 degree weather we woke up to yesterday morning. The other 4 eggs in the chicken coop might not have froze....
It's supposed to be in the mid 40's this weekend.....which will feel like a heat wave after the last couple weeks of barely getting into the 20's, and mostly in the single digits and teens. Now if the snow would just go away, and not leave mud behind, we'd be doing good!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

our weather pattern is the same and if you can figure out how to get all the snow to melt and make something other than mud PLEASE let me know!!!

I am glad to hear the signs of Spring at your house...bring it on, Lord. I agree, if the mud and yuck that follows the snow would just go away.. I am so ready for warmer temps. Blessings!

Our blooming hens have not stopped...I am so sick of eggs! Thank goodness the ducks have stopped though lol. We have just put 18 eggs in an incubator for the first time so wish us luck!
