snap it 'ground'
Playing Snap It with Faith Hope & a Whole Lotta Love, this week's theme 'ground'.
Bless our hens, they are not always laying during our sub zero nights, but each afternoon we leave the coop open in case they wish to lay in a nesting box, however, more often than not, we'll find one or two hens have wiggled their bottoms down on the hay & left a surprise for us on the ground.
Doesn't get fresher than this, or warmer (i remind the children where exactly that warmth is from - chicken's bottom) but they just think laying eggs it's the most clever thing!! One day i will receive the acclaim i deserve for hatching them!! From 8 hens, we're down to a couple of eggs a day, which is a steady enough pace for this egg loving family over Winter. Love Posie
