Here chicky, chickies

The girls have been good, happy and healthy.  Brittany, Frida and FiFi also have new nicknames, bestowed upon them by none other than S. Clapp:  Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.  BLD as a collective.  They have been laying well, eating a lot, and generally being happy chickens with no cares in the world.

But lately, something has been stealing/eating their eggs.  Not sure what it could be though.  No proof of fur, tracks or poop so it is sort of a big, looming question.  Some think it might be rats, a skunk, raccoon, or even them, eating their own eggs.  I really don’t know, so now to remedy the problem, everyday when I get home from work I make a stop and collect the eggs before I go inside.  It is a little bit of a pain, but definitely worth it, since I don’t need to be throwing money away!  Time for some pics:
