Something About That Third Box

Today is Wednesday, September 15, 2010. The weather is still hot and humid, 93 degrees yesterday. It is getting into the seventies overnight this is a good thing. The storms are arriving in the evenings, which makes it nice for getting things done.

The girls are so funny about the box that they lay in. There are six boxes and five hens, more than enough for them. But no, it seems that they all like the third box to lay in. The little white hen lays early, she likes to spend all of her time in the yard. She also likes the third box and laid her egg there yesterday morning. I collect the eggs last after I get the coop all cleaned up, water and food.

After I let them out, I went to cleaning, here comes the black and white hen. Up to the third box she goes. The little white hen's egg was still in the box, she moved that egg all over in there trying to figure out how she was going to sit to lay her egg. She finally get it where she wanted it and got down to the business of laying her own egg. About twenty minutes later, I went back and collected the two eggs. They are so funny about that third box, like this is the only box that they are able to lay in.

The little white one and the black and white one lay their eggs in the morning. Then comes nosy she likes to be where ever you are at and know what you are doing after her comes the "layer". She was the first one to lay an egg and to want to sit, or she thought. That ended after a couple of hours. They both like to lay in late morning, then trouble lays her egg in the early evening.

Now the layer likes the first box and lets them all to know it is hers. She loves to dig, she will dig a hole until all you see is her little head sticking out of it. She also likes to be off on her own, isn't really social, and will let them all know not to bring their drama to her.

Didn't get to much of anything done yesterday other than making the chocolate chip muffins. Young son finally got it yesterday with an English assignment. He really dislikes English and sees no point in having to diagram sentences. The light came on yesterday and he whipped right through all of it. I don't see the point to diagram a sentence either, have never in my life had to do it other than when schooling the kids. So I guess that in itself was a productive day.

Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today. ~Brightest Blessings~


  1. Haha...I'm so glad I'm not the only one that is ADD, DeDe. I think we women try to multi-task too much. That is so funny about your hens and that third box. It's so cute how they all have their little personalities. Oh and so funny, this is the third post that I have seen so far today on chocolate chip muffins. Did I miss something? Is it chocolate chip muffin month? Lol! It's a sign that I will have to make them. Hope all has been well and wonderful with you!!

  2. Hey Dede sounds like your little chicks have been busy. LOL I would love to watch them I bet they are a hoot to watch.
    You have a wonderful day!

  3. I think you should [quickly] start a little Diary of your hens. You've named them, and noticed their individual personalities. And now, their preferences for this-or-that box.

    I think it would make a cute Diary. Before you forget any details.

    Yeah, as if you needed one more project hu? -gigggles-

  4. So glad "the light bulb came on," about diagramming, for your son. I need, need, need to know how and why, in order to do things. That "Ah-hahhhh" moment is priceless.

    Nope, never diagrammed another sentence. But I think it's a visual way of seeeeeeeeeing what an 'adjective' and an 'adverb' and etc. "do." In fact, I'm glad to know that they still have kids do this. Seems so many "older" things, have been discontinued. :-)


It was nice of you to take time out of your busy day to stop by. Blessings to you and your family! (((HUGS)))
