The poor, deprived chickens have been cooped up literally for two weeks. We couldn’t let them outside because the snow was too deep. Besides, the coop is heated and we had days and days that the temps barely got into double digits and too many nights with near zero temps. They were safer, though not happier, inside the coop.
Today is sunny and much warmer — mid 40’s. The 15 day forecast shows no snow! YAY!!! Better yet — our highs for the next two weeks will be in the 50’s and 60’s.
This morning Vince went out and shoveled a clean spot and moved the chickens’ run and let them out. They’ve been running and flapping their wings . . now if they can just remember their main job in life . . EGGS!
I’m thankful we didn’t have need for the chicken jail or the chicken hospital. The two trouble causers are gone and it seems that everyone got along splendidly, even in tight quarters for almost two weeks.
Another couple of days and we might be able to use our deck again!
Spring is just around the corner . . I hope!
