    ...who LOVED to lay in one certain nest box. But today there was a problem...Purdy beat her to it. So what does Bertha do? She sits on top of Purdy:

    Purdy holds her ground for a couple of minutes but then they start to scuffle (friendly scuffle that is):

    Purdy gives up and I help her find another nest box:

    Bertha gets right down to it:

    Looks like Purdy wasn't the only one to beat Bertha to the box:

    WOW! [​IMG] Too funny! Caught her in the action! Looks like the egg is just popping right out of there. [​IMG] Isn't it so funny how some of them have their favorite nest. By the way.....pretty chickens.....they look like sisters.

    They came from the same shipment. They might be sisters, or not. [​IMG] They're from Ideal.​

    Don't let PurpleChicken get a hold of that first picture! He'll claim to have the first two headed chicken that lays four different color eggs! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I can't believe they'd share that space. My girls would never play that nicely.

    Someone's got to finish your limerick!

    Love it!

    I especially like that look in Bertha's eye in the first picture. She looks exasperated! "arg! She KNOWS this is my spot!"
