If you’ve ever raised chickens, then you know that six nesting boxes is actually four too many, for 30 birds.
There are THREE hens in the next at the right. The tail on the right does not belong to the bird on the left.
The box to the left of that has two hens in it.
Along comes another hen…
“Let me in, let me in!”
“Not by the hair on our chinny-chin chins!”
“Well, then, I guess I’ll just have to go find another place to lay this egg.”
“Yo, you – scoot over.”
Please, note – there are four completely empty boxes right next to the two popular ones. There is no difference between them; they get the same straw, we raid them for eggs at the same times…
“Well, if I can’t nest there, then I just won’t lay at ALL.”
They fit in just fine here.
