Daily Harvest

The chickens have been free-range in the yard for the last week or so, in order to keep Lemon Harmon from pecking the little ones too much. So the two big chickens have not been laying in the coop. For a long time we couldn't find the eggs- not under the porch, not in the compost bin, not in the tall grass.... Then! Lo! Behind the rosemary- a bunch of eggs! Some were cracked and eaten- possums? rats? raccoons? squirrels? Now we know where to find the eggs.

Lemon Harmon! Great Name.

Great egg-hiding spot, I guess.

Are the newbies faring any better while all free-ranging?
