DH cared for (read: fed and watered) the animals while I was gone. About half way through the vaca, I asked if he was collecting eggs. I had told him before I left that if he didn't, the hens would go broody on them. He never collected them. I was gone 12 days. Last count, there were 39 in there. A hen on a mountain of eggs. Then another hen joined her. I need to sort through and give each girl some and take the others that were laid late to put in the `bator, but I'm still too exhausted from the trip to deal with that. heh Trip was good, sister is not doing well, though. Chemo exhausts her and makes her horribly sick so they've halfed each dosage and she'll have to be on it for double the time.
