A feast of eggs

The chooks have now all got over their hysterical brooding frenzy (none of the eggs were fertile) and have got down to the serious business of laying eggs for the table. The Queen of the Chooks and I cleaned out the coop a couple of weekends ago and made some alterations to the perching rails to discourage nesting on the floor, which has been a significant vice this spring. The birds are now back to laying eggs exclusively in the nesting boxes and at a rate of five a day on average. The national strategic egg reserve is now being maintained in our no. 2 fridge.
