Two days ago I went out to our deck and almost sat down on an EGG! What was an egg doing on the wicker couch?! It was small and white. Only one of our hens lays that sort: Sweetie. But the deck is fenced in and not anywhere the chickens have ever roamed. But there it was. I imagined her searching for a quiet spot, peeking between the rails, and then spotting that soft, comfy corner to nestle in. We all had a good laugh about it and wished we had caught her in the act. Fast forward to yesterday afternoon. We had friends over and I pulled up the above pic on instagram to show them. Cuz doesn't everyone instagram their chicken escapades to share with guests? That's when I read the latest comment which referred to chicken habits... once they lay an egg in an unusual spot, be prepared for a repeat performance. I ran to check the couch.... lo and behold, Sweetie was just getting comfortable! You've got to admire a mama who knows how to find the best possible place to lay her egg. She's one smart hen!
