Spring is Coming!

True, the weather can’t make up it’s mind about what to do, but the peepers are making a huge racket in the back acres. It started raining last night – and rained like crazy all day. We just need a few days of warm weather to kick start the grass.

The chickens are laying great. The ducks are leaving eggs in the straw. I get a goose egg every other day.

So the signs of spring are all over the place.

I’ve got a dozen Buff Orphingtons on order. We’ll have chicks even if none of my yearling hens go broody. I’m hoping the four Buffs will set and give me some homegrown chicks. If nothing else I’ll sneak a few Buff eggs into the duck nest. The ducks always hatch chicks for me.

I’m looking forward to having baby geese, too.
