Those darn chickens
I cannot work out where they are laying their eggs. And now it's more than just one Maran. Egg collection rates are down and I just know that there is a cache somewhere but I have hunted and hunted and so far no joy. So tomorrow I am not going to let them out of the run until after 1 pm. This will probably cause much discord in chicken household but that's their own stupid fault. I can't be expected to stand in a field observing chickens all day. And I can't afford GPS tags for each chicken no matter how amusing Tom might find this idea. He also suggested a web cam - which I suppose would be harnessing the power of the web and all you lot out there to watch the damn birds for me. Another amusing but clearly unworkable idea. I don't think he's taking this problem seriously somehow...
