It was nearly 80 degrees at the homestead just a short time after a blizzard dropped 2 feet of snow on the ground. There is still a lot of snow in places.

It was an awesome day at the homestead with spring cleaning and preparing the yard for summer.

We moved the chickens and then cleaned up the area where they had been. We were moving them around closer to home during the cold months but now its time to get them out into the yard further and away from the house.

We are scraping up the chicken bedding and moving that to the compost bin for next year's fertilizer.

I cleaned up around the fire pit and then set the brush on fire to burn it off. The logs will be kept to sit on during the summer months. The tree bark and sawdust from the chainsaw will be put on the garden walkways to keep weeds down.

Melanie is running an egg business here in the neighborhood and she is buying the chicken food herself now. We both care for the meat birds but the egg layers are all hers now.

Our meat birds are suddenly growing fast now that it is warmer. They are all quite healthy too. We put some Bantam chicks in with them to let them snuggle in and stay warm at night.

Melanie is starting some seedlings for the garden already. We cannot plant for a month yet but we are getting things ready. Once the ground is workable I will till the garden and work in some compost. But there is still snow in areas.

We put 16 eggs in an incubator to get some more chickens this year. We hope to start raising chickens fully on our soon in the next years.
