Tom emailed me this a.m. to say he found these eggs. They were in the temporary coop, actually, not IN the coop but in the general area inside my potting shed. I know that chickens are creatures of habit (but aren't we all?) and since we didn't have a nesting box for them since Day One, they will begin to hide their eggs on us...especially because they are free-range birds. Cowabunga: look at that monster egg, though. No telling how old these all are, so they are all going into the compost heap (tossed, from a distance, to then be quickly buried). Poor birds.
