    Well, I went out to take pics and ended up sitting out with the birds while they free-ranged for a good solid 2hrs! It's warm today here, around 54F, no wind, a bit of sun with cows on the hill & geese flying by above. Nice day for sure!

    How about you? Did you enjoy the nice weather with your chickies?

    Warning- Pic spam galore! Also, a few artsy photos.
    I do not know the breed of all of them, so if you know what the tiny gray/yellow two are, let me know. Also, the big red/brown ones, no idea..lol. Yes, I have finally started free-ranging a month ago. Though, I only do it when I am home, so after work and weekends.

    82 today, chickens didn't care for it too much though. They went straight to their dust bathing spot to cool off in the dirt.

    I love to sit out with my chickens in warm weather! Today was a different story... It was in the 30's and pouring down rain. [​IMG] I am so ready for spring and summer!

    In California it's... 70 degrees, I guess? Spring has come really early! So I lock the big girls up in the run (they try to establish a pecking order with chicks that are too small to be pecked) and set a towel out on the grass and let my 2 EE chicks run around in the bushes. Then the 2 little girls come over to me and take a sun-nap in my hair. I don't mind naps, but if they poop in my hair...

    Secuono, it might be better if you don't post so many pictures in one post in the future. I'm sure folks on dialup were screaming, LOL.

    Most pics usually don't turn out so well and if I link it, no one will go see them. Plus, I also made the pics 1/5th the size they were..Sorry either way.
