We spent a great deal of time at the drawing board designing the perfect ... hen house. Plenty of room, plenty of nest boxes, just the right amount of light and fresh air. Seemed pretty spiffy to us.
So, we rounded up the girls and had a little conference. They were given some time-out in their quarters for a few days. I mean, Easter is one thing with this egg hunt business, but everyday?
They got the idea. Now, they are agreeable to laying eggs in the proper place.
What a relief. We weren't exactly looking forward to building another chicken house.
