Jewel laid at my feet
I thought it was time you saw the Moop. Isn't it quaint? The new gray tote to the left of the can with their laying mash is full of cracked corn. I need to add flax meal to it to get the protein up. I want to avoid soy, which is a bit of a trick once they are laying.
This morning, I let them out mid-morning and found three new eggs. As I walked back out of the Moop, there on the ground was an egg. I picked it up and it was still warm. The ground where it lay was cold and bare. Did she know I was picking up eggs and so would be sure to find it there? Did she not want to go into the Moop and lay the egg while I was in it? Very curious. I have never seen this before.
