    ok so i lied!

    I got one on my back porch about three months ago- in a shoe of all places.

    four weeks ago I found a duck sitting on four under a bush. . . all DOUBLE or tripple yolkers.

    then two days ago i got a brow/brick red egg with lighter almost white or off white speckles. on my front porch in the puppy pen.


    Today I got FOUR of the above, in the nest box.


    finally!

    Is it safe to say that at least 4 hens now "get it"?

    Sorry you lost the girls, but [​IMG] that's a lot of eggs? Sneaky chickens.

    Curious here, where'd your FIL find them?

    it was a combination of the well pump house that has been open for a few days while we are fixing the well and the garden shed where I typically keep the girls food, but Have been cleaning out to make it a coop... so I guess they got that one right!
