The hens love spring! You can watch them take long and extremely enjoyable baths in sun warmed sand close to our house. They take small (I mean big) bites from the newly planted pansies. They give us one egg a day. And, now and then, they come visit us indoors. It is nice to have them around. If you feel stressed out or unfocused, the best you can do is to stand watching them for a while. That cure always helps.
