A Second Hidden Nest

Today we found a second hidden nest in the tall weeds. Elizabeth has been thrilled getting to gather all the eggs.
It sure feels good having fresh eggs once again!

Patty, it's almost like she went on an easter egg hunt. Good for you on th eggs! Now you can do lots of BAKING!

You might want to built some nesting boxes, since these hens probably will be setting/sitting on the eggs. Not to cool to crack open an egg and its starting to be a little chick.

I agree about building them some nest and trying to get them to use them.. I'd be worried about snakes hiding around the nest.

Eww, I had thought about cracking open an egg to find a half formed chick, but hadn't thought about them hens a safe place to lay those eggs! (Safe for the hens, but mostly safe for Elizabeth and YOU!)
