After a long winter the birds have been let out of the pens to free range (?). There is still too much snow for anything, but you can see in the top photos that they have managed to find a small patch of ground. I spread out some food for them to scratch at. The ducks are having fun putting their bills into a puddle just outside the outdoor pen. I went to check on their pond, but is it still frozen.

The girls look like their having a 'chat' inside the hen house. With the longer days and sunshine the egg production is finally increasing again. A big difference from 6 eggs a day to 18!

I imagine they ran from the coop when you let them out! I guess you'll have to make lots of easter eggs!
