    I'm sure a lot of you have read the story about Frack, my house chicken. She comes and pecks on the front door every day to come in and lay her egg in an old dog kennel that we had in the kitchen. Well, I just bought one of those dog crates that looks like an end table. It is a nice piece of furniture, and we put it in the living room. I put an old soft blanket inside and showed it to Frack the next day when she came in. She promptly went inside and laid her egg. That was Monday. Tuesday she came in, as usual, and laid an egg. Wednesday, Bertha, one of my Jersey Giants, was at the front door. I opened it and in she came! She has never been in the house. She went into Frack's dog crate, laid an egg, and went back to the front door. I thought, okay, that's two eggs I don't have to go outside to find. Thursday morning it was Ebony, afternoon it was Frack's turn.

    Now it's Friday. Bertha pecked on the door about noon, came in and laid her egg. Now Ebony, Bertha's sister, decided to come to the front door. I let her in. She looked around a little bit and then went straight into the crate. She just finished her laying and went to the front door. Frack is next in line, but now I see Shadow, my RIR is on the front porch!

    This leads me to believe that Frack is a tattle-tale!!! What's next - am I going to have to put a doggy door in?

    Forgive the blurry picture, I'm not sure what happened.

    I can just imagine the conversations in your coop. Keep your bedroom door shut! [​IMG]

    What are you going to do if you ever can't be there to let them in? My 2 RIR's that are laying have a certain spot BEHIND the nest boxes I made. If I shove them up against the wall to try to make them lay IN the nest boxes...they get all bent out of shape! You never heard such cackling and carrying on! Then they will run out of the coop and go see if they can get in my horse trailer! They are too funny, but not as funny as yours coming to the house!

    That is just too funny! Obviously Frack cannot keep a secret, or she just needs to brag!

    (Now you need to know that I have 5 young rabbits [​IMG] in a cage in the hen house until their lean-to is done, then I'll hang their hutches in there...but back to the story)....{{{chuckle}}}
    I get out to the hen 2 am in my night gown [​IMG] the Roo and his harem all gathered round the rabbit cage [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] squawking to beat the band!!! I swear they were all yelling: "FIGHT!!!!! FIGHT!!!!!"[​IMG] LMBO! The rabbits were either fighting [​IMG] or breeding [​IMG] LOL!I laughed all the way back to bed and went right back to sleep!![​IMG] They're all nuts![​IMG]
