    I don't know if it's strange, but I found my little mille fleur mutt in the bottom part of my greenhouse, on a lot of gravel, and she did her egg there. They always go "home" to do their eggs. But she found a "place where she could go" and decided that she would make a deposit before she had to go home. [​IMG]

    Not really strange but up on the rafters in the barn and found a young roo hanging upside down penned between a horse trough and the barn! Hanging out in the pig pen.

    Perched on top of the rabbit cage in my living room (that one had a little help getting IN the house, but apparently decided to check out the rabbit by herself).
    In the compost bin, sitting on eggs. In the garage on top of DH's hovercraft.
