Alright, I was in the barn collecting eggs the other day. When I opened the lid on one nest box, there was a hen turd in the box. I collected the egg, then gingerly picked out the turd & dropped it out in the run. I think my brother almost gagged. Thing is, I pride myself on clean eggs. I have had many comments on how clean my hatching eggs are...the reason for that is that I keep my nest boxes as clean as possible. The hens don't typically poo in the nest boxes, but if they do & I happen to see it...I'm not opposed to picking it out. (Oh, I should also ad that I do carry a small bottle of hand sanitizer in my coat pocket at all times!) Anyway, I got to thinking...maybe that IS totally disgusting...or, maybe most folks do this...? Just curious, and thought it might be a fun poll. Remember that you don't have to post if you don't want to...so we'll never know who picks turds from nest boxes unless you decide to post!
