I work at night, so when I get home, it's quiet in the house, so I go out and let the girls out in the yard for a bit. I change the water, feed them, tidy up (looks like they had a party in the coop sometimes!) and collect the eggs. I usually have a basket or a plastic bucket to put them in. Today, I thought it was a good idea to put 9 eggs in my lab coat pockets. Well, that was an excellent idea until I bent down to pet one of the chookies on the head......POP and a pocket full of egg. ick. use a basket/bucket.
