Hey Mom what'cha doing down there? (pics!)

Discussion in 'Chicken Behaviors and Egglaying' started by keeperofthehearth, May 4, 2008.

  1. Freda began laying again yesterday so I set up a nesting box for her. It seems that like all kiddo's her 1mo. old peeps don't seem to understand that she might llike a bit of privacy once in awhile. [​IMG]
    This was this eve. when Freda decided she'd like to lay her egg.

    Hey Mom, why aren't we in our nice roomy bed?

    What'cha doing down there?

    Hey move over already . . . give me some room. . .

    [​IMG] Freda hadn't layed that egg when I left. I thought I'd give her some space, [​IMG] unlike her 7 young'uns.

    I didn't go potty alone from1991 to 2004. Now, if I can just get them to leave me alone for a full shower, I'll feel like I have died and gone to heaven. Freda, I feel for you.

    Quote:HAHAHAHAHA I have not gone to the potty alone since 1984! I gave up on showers...I just soak in the tub while listening to the child yacking at me. I swear if I ever get this last kid out of the house I probably will not be able to go alone. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    [​IMG] Thats hilarious! I have an oddly memorable moment when I was very little, my mom was on the toliet and I was bothering her about something and she just yelled "SHUT UP"! I was crying and crying, but now I can completely understand that situation now [​IMG]
