This was the egg cache discovered under the porch in a nest-like structure.
Even though they have a spacious coop, the chickens have high expectations and wait excitedly to be let out into the yard to roam.
But we are done with that, since all of these had to be tossed. We aren't feeding them for free!
The chicks and chickens never realized their group potential. But thankfully, we have a neighbor who intended to get chickens and took the bossiest ones. I surely miss them, especially Bessie. She was so social and sweet. But i don't miss all of the 'pecking to the skull' bit.
Pidgie survived and all of her feathers have grown back. It amazes me what a body can recover from.
