Hear Ye! Hear Ye!
Come gather round. We have an announcement!
Don't push. Don't crowd. Leave some room for you to
something more priceless than diamonds. More precious than gold.
the world's most expensive to produce egg...
Isn't it marvelous? Is it not the most spectacular thing you've ever seen?
Yes, I thought so, too.
It seems if you build it, they will come...the eggs that is. If you build nifty nest boxes out of dish pans and some scrap lumber the hens will suddenly up and decide they must use the new facility immediately.
Little Beth, our "special" chicken laid her very first egg, yesterday. Bob stood by her side the entire time. We were so proud of both of them, we let them celebrate with they're favorite treats of apples, weeds and breadcrumbs.
Now if we can just get 12,000 more eggs from them it will pay for the coop. *cough, sputter*
