Latest Weird Nesting Site...

Yesterday I pruned back a bunch of rose bushes, leaving the cuttings out overnight for the tortoise and the chickens to forage in.

This morning...


Bear decided to lay an egg in there. Now--I cannot THINK of a more uncomfortable nest than a pile of pure rose branches, with all those thorns! I SWEAR they have nest boxes, lovely proper wooden ones with loads of fresh straw.

Nope. Nothing will do but this nasty pile of thorny branches. Even Phoenix the rooster was looking at her like she was nuts.

Weirdos.

    Wow! That's the chicken brain, for you.

    1. It's like the chicken version of the Hindu bed of nails. And by the end of the day, we found FIVE eggs in there.
