    You have no idea how hard I'm trying to suppress the obvious Gonzo reference.

    Thanks for posting this.

    That's one 'ell o' a coup there Lee. Some lucky fowl.
    In the US this perverted idea of “blood and soil” over “constitutional principles” is the most radical and anti-democratic and anti-Conservative idea I have heard in my lifetime.

    Broody hens are a pain if the cant do the broody thing. I had one that did that all summer one year. I would steal her eggs and she would move to the next nest with eggs in it. Crazy Chickens.

    Mine all lay in the same spot. Should probably put dividers in. This girl takes over the pile, every time.

    Good lord Lee that is a 5 star chicken residence! We move our layers around on a 5x7 trailer coop with electric fence. Their present abode is under oak trees on a north facing hill. I open up the down hill roof because they like climbing out and taking flight for a short distance. Then I close it at night. We’ve got garbage topsoil so they’re the advance guard laying down a toxic fertilizer layer that I follow with misc cover crops.

    I don't know how true it is but I have read that if one goes broody it will slow down or stop the other hens from laying. There is a back yard chicken forum that you can find out anything chicken people know. Kinda like this place but about chickens.

    Are you using a chicken groomer to keep them in tip top looking shape?

    Joe? Joe? Think you expand from dogs to chickens. Lee needs a reference.

    I was thinking the same thing, working from home has been great for the chickens. They get let out all day instead of being in their coop. The yolks are getting nice and orange, the garden is covered in their poop, and the kale plants going to seed are actually getting some use finally.

    Life is good, at least until you think about it.
