    I found this old bunny box a while back and had it in the coop for my girls to use for a nesting box, they refused & never laid in it once. Well Since i finished up my little coop yesterday, I decided to paint it and make it look nicer and set it inside the little house i am finishing. WELL, either they can read or they just didn't like the ugly brown box that had "bunny" scratched into it!!

    I opened the coop door to find this today...

    I got 3 eggs in it the very first day! Pretty good considering I think I may have really rattled all the girls by moving the coops around this last week, lol.
