I want to know how what appears to be a Jack Russell they got to lay there.
Never seen a Russell that would mix with chickens or any small critters.
Tough choices this month I am going to have ponder this a little longer.

Heard the chickens making a racket here this morning, thinking it may be a mongoose I'd seen the day before that was after chicks I hurried along to investigate. When the chickens saw me they quietened down, all except one. Olive was in an old oven cackling her butt off, frantically trying to make a nest. Olive is a pullet that had yet to lay an egg...until today.

I approached the old oven and on seeing me she swivelled around and came to meet me. Her eyes were just about popping out :help: :lol:

I picked her up and together we inspected her nest. We decided it needed grass so off I went to collect, then with her in attendance, placed it in a pile in the oven. She was in a great hurry and immediately got to work. She then settled down and started picking pieces of grass and tossing them on her back. I left her there and about 5 minutes later the racket irrupted again...Olive had laid her first egg, much ado about a small little white egg :p

Thanks folks.

Holm25, he's a fine feathered boy. They always seem to go into the shade when you actually want them in the sun to get a good pic of their colors, what is it with them :roll:
