  Pumpking Nesting.  

April 26th 2008 - We have three hens. The one we call Pumpkin has taken to nesting in the coop and has been sitting on the eggs all spring. We haven't the heart to tell her that she needs a rooster!

All in all they are fun to have around. They follow you when you're outside and like to eat the cat food. They provide on average three eggs a day.
