Shocked and surprised to find 4 eggs in the nesting box today! 1 of the Marans is laying again,(hip hip hooray) and Freida's molt is over and she is laying again. Thank goodness. Working on a small run on the front side of the coop today, just to give them some added covered space when the snow hits. And Mick just hasn't learned a lesson, picking fights with a rooster 3 times your size, never turns out well. Had to put him in the enclose run by himself, so he could calm down. Snapped a couple of pics today since the girls were all watching me work.
Coco cleaning herself after the boys were fighting over her.
Francesca watching me work
Minnie grateful Mick isn't around!

My poor broody Clara, her molting is almost over and finally filling in but she looks so thin. She has turned out to be such a good Mom. I noticed today that she is giving the babies a longer leash and letting them venture further away from her. She is still in the small coop with the babies, I am kind of scared to move them into the big coop. Those boys are so big they might step on the babies. Thinking of making them their own little apartment next to the splash n partridge orps that just went out.
