Sharing a nest box

Dot usually lays her egg in a corner of the chicken shed and it’s always the same corner. But while Sugar is broody Dot is very interested in her nest box. Dot sometimes joins Sugar in her nest box despite Sugar raising her tail and growling at her.

Yesterday Dot settled in the nest box with Sugar. Later when I checked on them Dot was back in the run. I lifted Sugar and there was Dot’s eggs under her. Sugar must have been pleased to have an egg to sit on for a little while.

They are such funny girls that you can’t help but smile at them.
