    as I was walking out to the coop. Only the song wasn't coming from the coop. It was coming from the opposite direction down by the storm shelter. The ravine in front of the storm shelter door is one of the chickens favorite places to hang out.
    I hauled boogey and almost broke my neck trying to catch a hen in the act, but as soon as she saw me she shut up and walked away.
    My egg count has been down for a month now. I have searched the area around the storm shelter multiple times and today got my DH to do a search down there. I'm not finding any hidden nests. [​IMG]
    My DH says the chickens are just messin' with me. Are they? [​IMG]
