    There is one little spot in the yard where a hole was filled in and the dirt isnt yet hard and frozen like the rest of the yard.... and it was found...

    Very cute! I just can't believe there is some place left that has dirt that is not frozen. I haven't seen grass in months!

    Dirt baths are the best! The first time we saw one of the chickens doing it we rean out side and thought she was having seizures or something. you could just see the look on her face " And the humans call us chickens crazy?!?!?!"
