Hens Get to Work!

Every day I remind the hens "people need eggs to eat!  Please get to work!"  And I get home and find a few dirty eggs in the nest that I have to take inside, scrub, and put into our Busy Solitude Farm cartons for your enjoyment.

Then this morning when I went into the barn I saw this:

The nest boxes were full.  Well, in fact they were over full--
See the extra tail behind this hen?  Two on a box!!!

And much to my surprise, when this Ameraucana hen left her nest, what did I find?

 Egglebert hopped up to look, too, and when we peered into the nest box we found---
A neatly packaged half-dozen eggs, all clean and shiny!!!

Egglebert gave them his stamp of approval, and you should, too!

Egglebert is doing a good job fertilizing and supervising.
