Doubling Up

Yesterday I got only six eggs, so the hens were hopping to today. Lucy, the hen in the back, has been setting this spot since Sunday. And Rosa always wants this spot. I noticed a couple of days ago Rosa was clucking like she was getting broody. I hope not.

Just sit on top of her head; I'm sure she doesn't mind.

Pepper is outside just a clucking. She is ready now.

Finally, Peppers turn. I guess it is hard to lay an egg with a hen on top of you.

Skylar had to go to the vet to have her ears checked. Got to make sure they are healed.

"They're fine; NOW can we go?
Yes, we can. Good girl.

Glad to hear Skylar's ears are better. Your chickens are cute.
Have a good weekend!

Hens can be so weird! Mine do the same, sitting on top of each other wanting the same spot. I have tried multiple nests but no. They all prefer the same one. Leads to broken eggs and lots of cackling.

Togetherness... the hens tend to overdo. Wow... 6 eggs, I remember those days. Glad your girls are laying. Hope Skylar doesn't have any more ear problems.
