Spring chickens?

Our chickens are happy the weather has gotten warmer the last few days. We spread some hay on the snow so they could go out and scratch around and get some exercise. They are more content now and the egg production has improved. I have six Buff Orpington hens but none are in this picture. Went into their building and several were laying eggs and the rest were looking anxiously at the favourite nest box. Isn’t it funny how they all seem to like the same nest.

  1. I've noticed the egg production has increased with my hens too! It's so nice when they can get a little sun.
