It feels like Spring has sprung

We have daffodils:

A lamb:

And chickens kicking it into high gear:
(This morning both our Red Sex-links laid eggs, maybe to show those young things how it's done. That's their jumbo eggs flanking one of yesterday's petite pullet eggs.)

There's even a little sunlight filtering through the clouds! Yep; it really feels like spring now.

That's it for now from . . .

By this afternoon we had FIVE eggs - the two jumbo ones above, two pullet eggs, and HUGE one that I suspect is a double-yoker. I should go check to see which chicken is hobbling!

Unfortunately, no new lambs yet....

I keep waiting for news of more lambs. At least 3 of mine are pg. Our chickens are laying up a storm, too. Love those fresh eggs!

I sure wish, Franna. I've been checking on Annabelle (big) and Bronwen (not big at all) all day, hoping someone would go into labor, but no such luck. Crossing all my fingers and toes that Annabelle has Barish TWIN EWES!

OOOOOO Cute baby, my 15 year old daughter is in love with your lil guy... She says she'll trade you a suffolk ewe. LOL And I have some hens who can sympathise with your hen. But I love seeing the double yolkers.
