|While setting the sprinkler (hen AC), I nearly|
planted my foot on this very unexpected egg!
Things I get to do today, everyday this past week, have me providing extra measures to cool my hot hens. I set sprinklers about in their yard to wet the ground. Damp earth is cool earth.
|Egg to the right (hard to see) about three feet from the clutch of eggs|
down in a hollow under these branches pruned from the Sequoia tree.
Such a perfect, cute, sheltered little nest! Felt guilty taking the eggs away.
I thought they were just sitting in the shade, panting. But these girls are full of surprises. Everyday is an adventure. And I think the heat has made them or me or both a little crazy.
