    I went out yesterday after not checking on the chickens for about a day or 2. I would look in at them, but didnt check inside of their dog house that they sleep in. Well, yesterday I went to add more shaving and noticed 4 EGGS!! Yay, they are from my frizzled polish, I checked her butt bones, and it was def. her they were quite wide apart. SO EXCITING!!

    So my question is, how many days can they stay out there if she is not sitting on them before they go bad?
