New Nesting Boxes.

SONY DSCDear Friends,

A few weeks back, I admired the handy work of Grey and Glynn in this post. SONY DSCI forgot to tell you about what they were building! SONY DSCSince our chickens started laying eggs, they were in desperate need of some nesting boxes.SONY DSCSONY DSC At first our ladies were hesitantSONY DSC…but once they got the hang of it, they haven’t stopped laying! SONY DSCWe are averaging about ten eggs a day, and have been eating them, baking with them, giving some away, and freezing some for this winter.SONY DSC They also got a new area to perch on at night time. They love it. The coop is totally calm come evening. It is so peaceful to go out and look at them all tucked away ready for bed. SONY DSCWe are still working on the completed coop, but our chickens are enjoying the new additions to their temporary home.

Love Grey & Brianna

  1. Hi there!
    Nice new animal housing is always exciting, and it looks like yours are very nice! I just noticed that your eggs in one picture might be upside down? Most people don’t realize that eggs should be stored narrow end down to keep the longest and best. The wide end has a larger egg cell and if the egg is stores upside-down that air cell has pressure on it causing the egg to age faster. Don’t mean to be a Nosy Nelly! Just giving some helpful chicken advice!
    Have a lovely day!
    kindest regards

    1. Oh my goodness…I’ve never heard this before. What great advice! I will definitely start storing them this way. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the tip! Love, Brianna
