The good news is that our hens are laying…
The bad news?
I found 26 eggs under the hen house this weekend.
It’s my fault, really. I should have anticipated this could happen.
After all, they love to hide beneath anything they can crawl under.
So, back into confinement they go until they figure out that their nest boxes are for nesting…
And we’ll need to enclose the space beneath the hen house so they can’t get to their preferred laying environment.
Goodness, that’s a small space they’ve been squeezing into!
I hope they figure things out pretty quickly. I miss our afternoon visits already.
And in case you’re wondering, Emilie is doing great these days. That’s really good news around here!
Just look at those oh-so-kissable cheeks… they don’t get much rest around me.
