The chickens have the right idea at the moment, at the first sign of any sunshine they stop what they are doing and all rush over to the sunny areas of Chicken World.
As Spring gets closer the sun hits their little part of our hillside much sooner in the day, and then later on in the Summer they benefit from it all day long and then they have the choice to either bask in it's luxurious warmth or make for the shadier areas behind the henhouse or into the edge of the woods when it gets too much.
It's nice to see them mooching about, chunnering away to each other as if they are putting the world to rights, with the odd crowing session from Jack the cockerel, who is sat just at the edge of the Eglu in this photo.
Little Enid stood at the fence looks a sorry sight .... but she is just sulking!
She had a little escape hatch where a squirrel had chewed through a couple of the strands of the fence and whenever she saw me she would dash out of it and come over to see if I had any nibbles, but as she could never find her way back in by herself I had to repair it .... now there is no escape and she sulks ... oh well at least she is sulking in the sunshine :-)
