This is the earliest in the spring we have raised chickens and the weather has presented some challenges to say the least. We decided to delay putting the birds out on pasture as we were concerned with how they would handle the cold (and as it turns out snow!).
Thankfully, they are very hardy and did just fine. We moved the first 80 last week and the remainder today (April 16) after the snow. It was a beautiful morning and I was pleased to have Katie there to help!
