Chickens Stories from Our Nest

Spring is Near

Daffodils in the yard

Finally I can say that Spring has arrived at Tilly’s Nest.  I found two little daffodil bulbs that have pushed their way through the soil.  I have also heard that the crocuses are in bloom along historic 6A. I can not wait to get to the coop and run and give them a thorough cleaning.  I also cannot wait to spread the chicken compost on my flower beds this year.  This is something that I am looking forward to, as this will be my first full year with the chickens.  Today, I also candled all of the eggs.  I could see baby chickens in all the eggs except for number 2.  So we will hope for 8 chicks in about 10 days.  Spring is such a wonderful time on Cape Cod.  New beginnings and new signs of life are everywhere I turn.  This is my favorite time of year.
