Especially if you're the one crammed into the back of the nesting box.

More photos below. . .

And it's not like we're short on space.

That's our Lucy Cluck Cluck!

The Daily Donkey 105: Hay Gnat

©, where nobody wants to give up their favorite spot, even if it means crowding a poor nameless hen (some of you know that it can  take years to get a name around here) who's just trying to hatch out some eggs—and Lucy Cluck Cluck is molting (the natural process of losing and regrowing feathers), which is why she currently sports that silly looking elegant poofy white tail.


  1. Our's do that too and we have extra boxes.....

  2. Ah chickens! Gotta love 'em!

  3. Maybe they're gossiping! thanks for the close up shots - it's fun to see those beautiful feathers! I love your chickens!

  4. It's me again. I forgot to ask if you were affected by the tornado/very bad weather this past weekend?

    Hopefully, you are all fine!!

  5. I've just found you,and boy am I happy about that! Just when I starting wishing for chickens in my back yard,I fall in love w/donkeys. Initially I was googling for 'can I freeze fresh zucchini'..and there you were. Nice to have found you,fabulous blog. Now I'm thinking of a trip to Texas,never been.It's a big place where do you think I should start...or not miss.(after I lose some weight,so I can eat my way through.) Nice meeting you,take care. rj

  6. Hey Farmgirl! If two is a crowd, what's five? =) Thought you'd enjoy this picture of our girls from two years ago. They weren't laying eggs yet; just looking for a comfy place to sleep at night!


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions.

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.
