Such Good Chickens!


When we had our outdoor labor party this weekend, I set up this nesting box for the chickens, thinking maybe…. Just maybe….. Someday they would lay eggs in it.

I was all set to wait not just days but weeks, months, perhaps years, before my chickens decided to cooperate.

But look at that! THREE DAYS!

My chickens are so smart! And suspiciously cooperative! And maybe they’re planning something….

    My husband had a heavy duty tablesaw next to our fence, covered with a tarp so the chickens made a nest under it and laid their eggs there. This past weekend, we moved it to the back deck so my hubby could start using it so their “spot” was gone. Lo and behold, they’re back to laying in the coop! Took me a half hour of searching to finally look in there! Sneaky girls!

    I swear I thought you were setting yourself up for disappointment. I would be scared, very scared…

    I was pulling weeds out of my flowers yesterday and guess what I found. A nest with 32 eggs in it. The kicker—I don’t have chickens!! Guess the neighbors chicken’s are REALLY free-ranging. Don’t have any idea how long they have been there. Should have made them a box :chicken: :chicken:
