Not just any roost.

Our hens are laying! Or at least one of them is. We've been consistently getting an egg a day for the past several days. Jonathan has taken it upon himself to be the official egg collector. They started laying earlier than we expected, so we didn't have any roosts built for them yet. True to form, Winn couldn't build just any box. No, not for the likes of our chickens. It had to be a fancy roost with a snazzy hinge on the back that opens up from the outside wall where we can gather the eggs without even having to enter the coop. Check it out...

Well, aren't you guys turning out to be quite the little farmers! Now the real question is...how do the eggs taste? :)
