See these lovely eggs? I took this picture late yesterday afternoon with my cell phone. They're smack-dab in the middle of a grow-out coop in which nobody "lives." I was surprised to discover them there, although I hadn't found the usual complement of eggs for the past couple of days. The older ladies use their regular nest boxes, but the pullets have been moving around and "testing" different nest boxes of late. I planned on gathering them all during my lunch hour today, because I knew i would need a footstool to give me enough height to reach over and into that coop. But Gilda, an EE pullet, was covering them. And she bristled at me. Well then. Okay. I will check again tonight when I get home from work - in the dark - to see if she's still there. If not, I'll gather all those eggs by the light from my special night-time baseball cap with LEDs in the bill. If she stays there two nights, she gets to keep 'em.
