Sea Worm!

Vacation Home for the Ladies

We bought a bottomless screen tent to provide the ladies with some new experiences and so we could eat/sit in the shade with fewer bugs and more chickens.  It worked out quite well.  The first few moments were definitely full of apprehension for Impatience.

Luckily they soon figured out that they were surrounded by delicious grass, and spent the rest of their time trimming our grass and scratching it up to find out what lay beneath.  It was good times for all.

2.75 oz Egg Record

We hard boiled the extra large egg to see if it would be a double yolk or just one- turned out to just be one large egg!  Here are some shots for comparison...
