Still a full house in the nest boxes.  While the two stripey girls look on, I found the yellow mama hen trying to squish her way into the first box.  If you look closely, you'll see why there's not room for Faith and Mama Hen...

It's because Rooster was in there!  What is a rooster doing in a nest box?  He scratched around in the straw for a minute, pushed the girls right out of the way.

Then when he realized I was looking he popped right out, proud as he could be.

I had a little talk with him.  I said "Rooster, we're low on box space at the moment.  Would you mind leaving the first room open for the girls who actually produce something?"

He made no commitments.

He's supervising. It's a surprise nest box inspection. "Good job, girls, keep it up."
