It was amazing how quickly the hens took to laying in those snuggy little nest!
A close-up of one of my two "red neck" hens....
Between the two of them they have 22 chicks!!
They are excellent mothers and neither has lost a chick to date...!
So, how about you sorting out the sizes of the eggs yourselves....A nest for small,one for medium,one for large...and one for extra large eggs!!
Not too much too ask is it...?
On another note...earlier today after we had gone to town for groceries and what not and everyone was settling in in front of the telly (except me,I settled in front of Blogland...) and I was feeling a little hungry and made myself a sandwich on the sneak with last night's barbecue steak leftovers because I was to lazy to make some for everyone....guilt caught up with me and I offered half my sandwich to hubby after he pointedly asked what I was doing....to make a long story short, everyone was feeling hungry and wanted a sandwich like mine and I bluntly refused..it was after hours after all..and before you knew it, my whole family gathered around the kitchen table and (tried) to teach each other about the uses of Chinese sesame oil and Italian Verjuice juice.....
That was one of the most interesting conversations ever in our house..I couldn't believe the ingenious use of mustard,sesame oil,verjuice,cos lettuce,red onions,tangy mayonaisse ,tiny rosa tomatoes and left over steaks..!! My family discovered their creative arty dues and I am so proud of them!!
Just goes to show how much one can do for oneself when forced to!!
Try it,you just might get your whole family fed without lifting a finger!!
