It's hard to stay mad at them though when they follow you around, cluck at you like they're trying to share some great story and then come to the back door later to say HELLO :-) Oh, and give us eggs most of the time!!!

Dirty Eggs & Cute Chickens
So, last week our chickens decided to lay their eggs not in their cozy nesting boxes, but in the back corner of their coop, right under their roost. The problem with this? Well, it is the only part of the coop that is not easily accessible to us without a shovel, broom or big stick. So, in order to retrieve said eggs without fear of breaking them, I was forced to climb up into their coop. Not a pretty picture, trust me (flailing arms, lack of balance, chicken shit everywhere...you get the picture). Completely gross. Here we were thinking they'd gone on strike again because we couldn't find any eggs, but no, they were just playing a joke on us humans.
