A tease of spring :)

The other day was the first day of only one or two days, since about mid December where there was no snow on the ground, and the chickens were ecstatic. In summer they eat some feed, and lots of bugs. In winter we almost double their feed cause there is nothing moving around in the frozen solid soil of Maine from December to March. But the other day, the ground was muddy, and grass shoots were exposed :). The chickens went to town eating the bugs and tender green shoots! So much so, I barely gave them any feed! Ahhhh, the first few signs of spring!....it's such a tease as today we are getting several inches of snow again :(
