Just had to share, after so much cold weather that it was 40* yesterday, and in the mid-30's right now (all ABOVE zero!) and my chickens are happily out pecking and scratching in the driveway where DH plowed snow the other day. The snow has melted and there is bare ground for them to scratch around in. It's all going to change this evening - tomorrow's "high" is minus 9, and tonight's low is minus 15. But right now, they're all out and happy. Gotta take advantage of the nice weather while we can.
