In between the two were...
TWENTY THREE EGGS!
And you know what is going to happen to those eggs?
They all have to be thrown out!
Actually, I likely will toss them in the compost pile a couple at a time and let the hens eat them. But no human consumption of these eggs.
So now we have to look back here for eggs while I try to make the hens move back to their nests. I'll have to stuff something in here to make their lives uncomfortable! Suggestions my chicken experts?
