Up at the barn
Every day now when I come into the buff rock run, the girls all run to the outside nest box and stand in a semi-circle around it, waiting. I collect the eggs as they watch (picture tennis-match head motions following each egg from nest to basket) and wait for me to ooo and ahhh over each and every egg. Once we have done all this, then--and only then--do they head to the coop for the night. If I don't do the ooo/ahh stuff, they will NOT go in for the night!

That is too cute! Chickens are so special! I had one of 6 1/2 week old chicks in my lap last night petting her and she went completely still, put her head on my chest and went to sleep like that. It was adorable.

No pressure on making sure you don't accidentally drop an egg while they're watching, eh?
Wonder how they'd react to that!

Not that you'd want to find out...

Maybe to them the ooohhh and aaahhh is a apology for stealing their eggs, so after they get the apology they can sleep better
