My black hen has stopped her Strike!! For the past three weeks Miss Thing has told me "NO EGGS till you get all these loud things out of my coop"... My Black Hen has not been thrilled with all the new additions but once the Roo's started with their noise she had enough. NO EGGS from the moment the Roo's started crowing..
Well, I guess she thought I suffered enough eating store organic eggs and gifted me this egg this morning. She stood next to her nesting box when I came in to feed and clucked softly till I went over and picked up her egg. She looked at me and I gave her tons of praise and a couple soft strokes down her back. She then walked in a circle a couple of times and then pecked the nearest Roo right in the face. I laughed so hard and gave her another round of strokes for showing him where he stood in her eyes.
What a marvelous Holiday gift - a Fresh Funny Farm Egg!!!
