Dear Mom,
This is what happens when two hens need to lay an egg at the same time (and there is only one nesting box)!

With Gloria on the left and Marge on the right side, they sat patiently together while Golda waited outside.

Love, Bonnie Jo

I can remember the three of us sharing a room at one point!!

Oh this is funny! I have 25 lovely ladies who should be laying in the fall. My dh and I are in the process of building nesting boxes for the girls. It's gonna be a 9 holer and completely a make-do masterpiece! Do you know if banties need the same layout as the big girls? We have them segregated so no one gets hurt. Thanks, Elaine

Elaine, banties will do fine with standard-size nest boxes. My nesting box is actually a bit on the large side, which makes it easy for the girls to share. It is so much fun to anticipate the first egg! I would love to see a picture of your ladies...send me an email! Bonnie Jo
