Silly Birds

Al moved the horse trailer to deliver a cow. We hadn't used the trailer for a while but someone else was obviously using it the whole time. This nest mostly contained duck eggs with a few chicken eggs thrown in for good measure. It did not take long for Rudy to find it & feel obliged to guard it. But it seems he only guarded it long enough for the other two dogs to come along & share his feast. It was gone within the hour but I didn't feel badly as it appears no one was broody& setting on the eggs, just depositing them their regularly out of habit.
