Yes spring! I haven't seen a red-wing but I hope I do soon! But the mud...yuck! My in-laws for Easter have all 4 of the their adult children fill the plastic eggs and then hide them(4 doz each)....there are 23 grandchildren and 22 greats...we are finding eggs in July! If you want some Lav orps or light or Coronation Sussex let me know... I am thankful that I have standing orders for any extra eggs we have..Kids eat eggs ever morning and then I sell about 13 doz a week..if I have them! Allows me to enjoy the chickens...tho it is hatching season so less eating eggs!
