    then 2 more yesterday...and today.....today there was 3, one from everybody [​IMG]

    Everyone has been laying in the nesting boxes, but this morning I found one out on the coop floor! The way my nesting boxes are built, it would be impossible for it to have rolled out.

    Could that horrendous thunderstorm at around 3 this morning had scared it out of her before she had time to get to the box?!? [​IMG]

    The four pictured below are the 3 from today, and one from yesterday.....

    I know sometimes I find one right outside of the box..usually cracked.
    I think sometimes the other girls push them out of their way.
    But they could also get tired of waiting and just do it outside the box.

    But I built 8 boxes, way before I even got the 10 BO's and 5 WR (foresight? maybe. OCD? most likely! [​IMG])

    Anyway, since they started laying last wednesday, I have been finding the eggs in 3 different boxes.

    I was kinda half kidding about the thunderstorm wisecrack LOL.

    Oh well, I guess I'll just chalk it up to one of those "chicken mysteries" that we as humans probably wouldn't understand anyway! [​IMG]
