Morning Traffic Jam

All four girls got ready to lay at once today. We only have two real boxes, and then kind of an open space next to them. If this keeps up, we may need to convert that space to boxes, too.

And yes, your eyes are not deceiving you–Bess laid her first egg this morning! In fact, the magical event happened just moments before this photo was taken. She seems to have survived the ordeal and may even do it again.

If she looks like she’s sitting on two eggs, that’s because there is a wooden egg in there too–that’s supposed to remind them of what the boxes are for.
