Just because I Love You.....

I caught this hen laying an egg out in the barn today. Just because I love you all so much, I decided to grab my camera and get it on tape. I thought, "Hey, this will only take a minute." Um, no. It took this chicken over 20 minutes to lay the egg. I guess I thought it would be a lot quicker. She has decided to start laying on a shelf we are converting to nesting boxes. Not the other shelf with hay and privacy. Weirdo.

I wanted to grab my camera later on when I caught our rooster "gettin' friendly" with one the the hens but I was not fast enough.

Life is getting exciting round here.

Yes, the egg survived. Miraculously.

Next week, I have something big to show you! I'm so excited.

Guess your hen can't wait to move in! She's probably trying to encourage you to work faster on the nesting boxes.

Guess so! She must like this shelf better. : )
