Well after the drama of Scar scalper herself a few days ago, and our cat taking up residency in the coop....it was cute to see Racey one of our Barred Rocks sitting in the nest box (only an hour after I said "I bet we will get an egg this weekend") Well she started making all kinds of racket, so we went in the coop and saw our first little brown egg!!!! WE ARE SO PROUD!!! DS is away for a few weeks so I had to call him and tell him, he was so happy I think he was crying!!!! I wanna know how do those little buggers (hens) know to lay in the nest boxes...I didnt tell them!!!?????
