The Case Of The Missing Eggs~

My chickens~girls have had a rough winter. They are starting to look a little better with sunshine and bugs once again. I was so excited about a month ago I started getting 12 eggs a day. I only have 12 chickens~so this great production. However ~I now have a few in moult season again. But still I was only getting about 6 eggs -this past week. Well I have farm boy around here that has been using my bail of straw for target practice and unraveled the giant ball of straw. My girls think this is great. They love playing in it! I rake it up and they string it out again. I noticed they were making nest UNDER the coop. You guessed it. I got a rake and started raking egg after egg from out of under the coop. Not knowing how long they had been under there. I took all the eggs and scrambled them up and fed them back to the girls. The eggs appeared just fine and the girls enjoyed their meal of scrambled eggs. I now must check under the coop each day for the missing eggs!
