With egg laying rates dropping as winter approaches, it’s not possible to notice an egg or two missing on any given day. Moreover, it’s been a while since our surrogate mother in residence Buffy has actually laid eggs — that’s OK, she contributes in other ways.
See anything unusual about the bale of straw in the back left corner of the chicken sunroom? Me neither.
I love that this crazy little chicken — the top of her head is about 6″ off the ground when she stands — decided to fly up on top of this bale to make a nest, rather than use one of the four nesting boxes in the coop. (The divas have been sleeping in the nesting box; maybe that’s a turn-off for Buff?)
