The nesting hen was not amused.
The other hens and roosters were more than happy to oblige... if I gave them food.
As always, the rooster was willing to strut around the barnyard and show off his shimmering feathers.
But finally, I said enough, and turned back to the task for the morning: cleaning the barn.
I cleaned around the counter and feed area, then turned my attention to the hay and straw. I planned to rake up the loose hay and straw and move the remaining bales into the corner.
However, the chickens changed my plans.
Apparently a hen has decided to make a nest. I'll give her a week or so and see if she decides to sit on the eggs.
