My first chore was collecting eggs. There were many eggs in the hen house, but there were also eggs in the barn. The hay bales seem to be a magnet for hens. These eggs were in a big round hay bale that had the center eaten by a cow. We didn't take the blue egg. Brightly colored eggs were in all the nests so the hens would continue to think it safe to lay in these nests and not look for more difficult to find locations.
Tomorrow will be a gardening day!!
