Our hens love the sunny days. Today, it was definitely spring in the hoop house (their winter home) and possibly even summer by the temperatures at least. The hens roam in the snow-free hoop house all winter. In addition to organic grain, we give them hay and some vegetable scraps for entertainment. In the photo and video, the hens are scratching in the hay finding some treats, seeds and I suppose maybe some bugs and such. The photo shows three of our Golden Laced Wyandottes, one of our prettiest hens, I think. They keep themselves busy, and mostly out of trouble, and they are always curious as to what you might be bringing them.
