Thanks for all who offered information on the subject of my "chicken strike." We're doing a little better today, four eggs for 13 girls. Not fabulous, but not as bad as it's been.

What we've also noticed lately is that several of our new additions don't stick to their own housing. Namely, Batholemew, Pumpkin and Minnie Pearl. They are all assigned to co-ed housing, which we need to get a net for to keep them from flying out.

Every night when we go to put the chickens to bed, Bart is up on the top perch in the hen house with his girls surrounding him. It's like it's his harem. So we move him to his house.

Then we go back to the hen house and get Pumpkin. She's usually perched up at the ceiling on top of a wire that attaches to the light fixture. She's next to get moved.

Finally, we head over to the goat house, and 9 times out of 10, there's Minnie Pearl, just perched at the top of their stall like she owns the place. We're really not sure why they don't stay put, but apparently they all have different ideas than we do.

We're just glad that we finally figured it out--at first we would look all over for Pumpkin and Minnie Pearl, but now we know right where to find them when they're not around for "bed checks!"
