Usually by the time I let them out of the pen they have all already laid their eggs. But not always.
Sometimes I randomly find eggs in the yard. Usually near the pen/coop.
This evening Mr. D and Nate were doing some wedding projects in this area by the sleeping porch.
At least two of the hens used this secluded spot for their nest.
We had noticed that they seemed very interested in this spot -- but we figured the bugs were especially thick there.
Even though we don't use the eggs found this way, they are still fun to find.
