Egg Laying in a Big Summer Basket

 My sweet hen Sadie is wearing a "chicken apron" for a while.
(More known as a saddle~apron for the hens when an aggressive rooster is tearing feathers & skin). 
 Her back tail feathers are being pecked on by naughty Daisy. 
She doesn't mind the apron and can still get a good dust bath!

I put this BIG basket in the chicken run in case the hens wanted to lay their eggs there.
Summer is upon us and the coop sometimes becomes warm inside.

Sadie took right to it, so I started taking pictures.
 Daisy became curious too!
I love how a chicken can s-t-r-e-t-c-h their neck!
Sadie is getting very annoyed and making screeching sounds.
What a "look" she can give!
 Okay now … 
back to what this nesting basket is all about!
 And there we have it,
a beautiful egg. 
The others followed, except one.
Nellie preferred laying in the coop.

Thank you sweet hens for your daily gifts!
