What is this hen thinking?

So 2 weeks ago, my husband called me to the barn to see what he had found. It was a hen that had hatched out 3 chicks.

IT’S JANUARY! What is this hen thinking? We are in Utah and we are experiencing single digits for Pete’s shake. Well we decided to see what would happen.

We set up an infrared heat source with a thermastat in the corner of one of the horse stalls set water under the heater and food near by. AMAZINGLY hen and chicks are doing great. I guess this must mean that spring is just around the corner, right?

Well my brain thinks that spring is around the corner. I am obsessing about all the things I need to do as spring approaches. I must say I am really excited about this year. I think it is going to be a fun one. ??
