Cheating chicken problem

Lost eggs under an old wheelbarrow.

One of our hens has been cheating on us!

We found this stash under a decommissioned wheelbarrow near the junk pile.

A definite drawback to letting the flock free range in the flood plain.

Kind of surprised other critters didn't find this stash before you did.

Haha! We had a bantam Wyandotte that would stash eggs. Once she had a stash of 15 little bantam eggs she was actually trying to hatch! We had no roo, so was rather futile. Where do the rest of yours generally lay their eggs when they are free-ranging in the flood plane? In the nesting boxes?
