I boosted Hope up (brave girl) and she started handing me down eggs. 1,2,3... 8,9,10.... 13!!!
Then we noticed that one of the boards that blocks off the underneath of the barn had fallen off. So I sent Hope scooting to see if there were any eggs under there. Of course there were... another ten, in fact. We had to check those ones by dunking in water to see if they were good or not. Good eggs sink; bad eggs float. They sank.
So now I have about four dozen eggs all of a sudden, a rich trove for this late in the season.
If only I could get at the eggs that some of the hens are laying deep in the blackberry bushes!
