I don't really have anything to blog about tonight, just wanted to swap out my title picture for the aster one I took a few years ago. Just found it recently, hiding among some other files where it didn't belong.
There have been a few more signs that Spring is not far away. The roosters have started crowing regularly again, and sparring among each other. They're trying to establish dominance to see who gets to escort the main group of hens around. The battle was between the barred rock and the golden-laced wyandotte. The barred rock won and now the wyandotte has to settle for a few of the less desirable hens, I guess. I'm not sure what criteria roosters use to judge the girls, but maybe the ones who lay the most eggs are most desired.
The hens have started laying again. That was the other sign that Spring is near. Oh, and the skunks have been coming out of the woodworks, another signal.
