The hens are FINALLY starting to lay. It has been the usual fits and starts, one egg, then a few, then none...
I went to pick up eggs, and because some of the younger ones haven't quite caught on to the "lay in the nest box" thing, I check to see if any random eggs are about. So, while looking, I went to the feed bin. Next to it, is the bin for the shavings I cover the floor with. Behind that, up against the wall, is the empty plastic bags from the feed, and the shavings.
This is not your typical place to find an egg.
But, there it was, more or less balanced on some of the plastic, between the bins. How it didn't get knocked down, or just plain fall off, I will never figure out.
But, I managed to pick it up, and it is now in the fridge for future use.
I am also keeping a curious eye on my birds...
