I don't see the girls as much as I'd like. It was easier when they were in the backyard. Jon checks on them nearly every day, shlepping food and water out there. Abby likes to visit them, too. Ok, so now I'm thinking of several things I need to photograph and update, and I'll try to get on that. But today's post is about a mystery!
First, the setting. Here is where the girls have been living for the last month and a half or so:
|That's Dale and Finn, working in the garden.|
|Here is another view of the setting.|
Everything seemed pretty normal. The girls were chillin' below the coop:
|Hmmm....Do they look sleepier than usual?|
And then, upon closer inspection, something unusual was spotted in the coop:
|Look closely in the back left corner. What do you see?|
Yes, a full three weeks before we expected, there they were, 3 eggs.
Ok, so who did it!?
Of course, there is no way to solve this mystery. We just know that 3 of our girls were busy yesterday! And we can only assume the others will follow suit soon. Of course, there are no nesting boxes yet. I mean, where was the rush!? Guess Jon has to get on that!
|The first gathering|
|A perfect egg|
Thanks, Girls! Happy Fourth of July!
