Last week Julia and Ben were playing outside and found a DOZEN eggs in a nest in the garden. They were not rotten, but when we cracked them we didn't want to take the chance eating them either. I suppose Marie and Scarlett have come to see the coop and even Lila's cat house as too dangerous to potential babies and are trying to be sly. The thing is, we didn't even notice that we were "missing" eggs--these two hens really lay a lot!
So now the kids have to have an egg hunt every day...I have noticed that we haven't had as many eggs in the past few days, so I think they've found a new hidey hole. Another chore to tend to....sigh!
