This morning in the barn I noticed a hen perched on the rung of a ladder.
This ladder is placed where it is so I can get into this space between hay bales.
The reason I need to get to this space between the hay bales is because it's the latest "hot spot" for laying. But I didn't realize the hens used the ladder to get themselves six feet up. They're cleverer than I thought.
I hadn't checked this spot for a few days, and evidently a lot more hens than I thought were laying in it. They'd spilled over into two areas.
Total: 16 whole eggs plus a broken one.
Just a little slice of life on the Lewis homestead.
