This is what I discovered when I walked out to collect eggs Sunday afternoon:
One of the screws that holds up the nesting box had apparently popped free.  The funny part is that one hen was comfortably setting on a pair of eggs, another was trying to settle into her roosting spot for the coming night and I found five unharmed eggs that had rolled into the corners of their nests.


  1. ha! They don't seem to be too bothered by it! The two on the ground look like they may be discussing how they should handle it!

  2. I believe you are right! Our birds are totally free range & there are half a dozen commercial nesting boxes like that scattered throughout buildings on the farm so they definitely had other options. Perhaps they were debating whether it was time to consider a new neighborhood ;-)
