Rebellious Chickens

As you may remember, Eric, Danny and Poppi made some super nesting boxes for our chickens.


We either have dysfunctional chickens or they are going through a bit of a rebellion.


Note the eggs on the floor right next to the nesting box!



Still, I won’t complain.  My rebellious little chickens are feeding us breakfast!








It wouldn’t hurt our rooster, Mr Bugle, to take note… The hens are earning their keep.  Best not attack the hand that feeds you, Mr. Bugle.


We may change his name to Stew.


  1. cracking me up~!!!! May your chickens and roosters read your blog or at least feel your frustration~!!

  2. I raised chickens when I was a teenager and they preferred to lay their eggs on the floor, too. Try putting a golf ball or fake egg in each box to help them "think" there is already an egg in the nesting box.

  3. At least yours are laying! Mine are on strike right now: 20 hens, and one egg today.. the first this week!

  4. What a fun post! You have busy chickens!

  5. @Suanna...I'm trying your idea. :)

    Thanks for the encouragement, everyone!


Thank you so much for leaving me a comment. Comments make me so happy that I dance around the room! ;)
