Chickens out

The cold and the depth of snow have kept the poor chickens confined to their coop for much of the last month-and-a-half.

With a few days of above-freezing temperatures at last, enough snow had melted to reveal some small patches of grass for them to eat today. It's been such a contrast to last winter, when they were out in the orchard much more often. I love seeing them scratching and pecking about outside.
