    leave it to my chickens to lay on a rainy day

    she is in the nest box right now .... they never hang out in the nest box --- never


    they usually run away when i try to reach out and pet them --- she didn't move


    so i put a bowl of feed in the coop nearby .... shut the coop and all i hear is bwaaaak bok bok bok bok bwaaaak bok bok bok


    i'll leave her alone for a few hours and see what happens ----- 29 week old buff orp --- buttercup

    Quote:yeah ... she wants an egg-and-cheesey

    egg fried - runny --- on buttered toast --- slice of cheese ..... and some mustard



    --- edit ---



    but she has to wait until mom gets home ..... she already decorated the egg carton and put a price tag on it --- $1.25 a dozen
