Welcome month of March, month of early springtime flowers, happy birthdays, and eggs!

As you may or may not remember, our family owns a flock of 14 hens.
But lately, NO EGGS.
The hens are eating them. I don’t know if a hen lays an egg and then cheerfully eats it, or if she leaves her egg behind and then the next hen wanting to lay HER own egg eats the one she finds “in the way” so to speak, to make way for her own egg laying endeavors. No matter, it is happening. It is annoying.
We are in the market for one of those nesting boxes which are slanted on the bottom so the freshly laid egg rolls away out of sight and out of the hen’s reach. In the meantime, I am positively haunting the coop in order to snatch away eggs just as soon as they appear.
In this fashion, I have so far collected 5 of them just this morning.
Three of which I promptly cooked and ate for breakfast. Outside. So I could watch.
“Yes, I am watching you.”
