Not Quite Spring Update

Hello everyone!  It's technically spring here in Central Ohio, however it doesn't look so much like it.  My chickens do not like to walk around in the snow, but they do like to eat it!  I took them in a "chicken sno-cone" this morning!  Check it out!

I have a couple of chickens that do not want to lay eggs in the bucket nest boxes.  I'm not sure why, but they always lay their eggs in the corner.  So I found this old drawer out by the burn pile, and recycled it for a nest box.  So far, only one of them has used it.  I need to add a top to it so they don't scratch all of the straw out.


Here's what it looks like this morning and what I was doing after the farm chores were done.



Hope everyone has a great day today!  I'm glad it's been too wet to plant the peas, the seeds would've rotted in all of this snow!
