Hen on a Rainy Day

We'd just moved a new round bale into the pasture with some of the Dexter cattle. By mid morning of the following day this little hen had already found a nice place to nest that was sheltered from the rain. I happened to be feeding a bit of grain to a nursing cow when I noticed her snuggled in. At the end of the day I gathered the single egg she'd laid before moving on. This morning her little nest was gone, demolished as the cattle ate at the bale.
