Now that the chickens are free-ranging again, they have been copying many of the nesting techniques of the wild birds. Little nests are hidden away in the most surprising places. I spotted the first one this week, a moss and pine needle one next to the window air conditioner, one hidden on the back porch, and one from last year with sheep's wool woven through it. Goldie the chicken has made a very comfortable one for herself in the pansy flower box. The pansies were missing, but a nice, warm egg was there instead.
