    The last few days I have only been finding 2-3 eggs where I normally get 8-9. Sneaky girls had made a new nest underneath the ramp to the nest boxes hidden behind the handing feeder. [​IMG]

    LOL we found eggs hidden in an unused dog house. It was closer to the house than the coop and the hens like to hang out under the deck in the shade. I guess it was too far in the heat to walk down the hill to the coop.[​IMG]

    Yep, we had 3 of them decide to use the cat house on the back porch. Only discovered them when there was some squawking on the porch and I came to check it out. There were two ladies at the small door on the back side of the house, telling the one in there to hurry up, they wanted a turn. I opened the lid to see inside and .. . .. . . 18 eggs sitting as pretty as you please! I was shocked [​IMG]
