Spot the Hen!

Okay boys and girls!  It's time for everyone's favorite game, Spot the Hen!

Take a look at the picture (of my very messy barn) below, and see if you can find the hidden hen!


Don't see her?  Well, take a closer look ...


Getting closer ...


Here she is!


You found her!  Yes, that's right -- she was hiding in a box of trash!


Now, exactly what instinct is it that tells a chicken the best place to lay her fragile eggs is in a box of rusty screws and nails?  Hmm....  I don't think I have the smartest poultry on the planet.

And yes, as of today this hen's name officially became Spot.

Smart... poultry. Kind of an oxymoron, isn't it? :)

hens will find the oddest places to lay eggs. you would think that nails and screws would be an uncomfortable place to sit.

I find the thought of that "nest" extremely . . . uncomfortable! Sorta like sleeping on a bed of nails? Bird-brains!

Finding eggs in our barn is indeed an easter hunt. I never imagined she would have chosen that spot, though! Yeah, it's easy to see where the expression 'bird brain' came from.
