Chickens - yup, not the brightest bulbs in the box!

Okay, I had to start this post with fluffy chicken butts - our chickies have the most beautiful fluffy chicken butts ever. And, it's just so cool that these fluffy chicken butts produce such wonderful eggs!

Now onto the post ... I love our chickens, don't get me wrong, but I do have to admit that what they say is true. Chickens are NOT smart, and in fact, are quite the opposite. Our beautiful Buff Orpington chickens are now laying - at least it seems like 3 of them are. Today, for the first time, we got 3 eggs in one day! However, yesterday I think we would have also gotten 3 eggs, but 2 of them were laid from the roost! So, what do you think happens when a chicken lays an egg from a roost several feet in the air?! Hmmm, doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure that out. Anyway, it was nice to see that they managed to figure out where the laying boxes are (or at least the floor) and so today we got 3 eggs! Yay!
