One of our Black Australorp hens, Corrina (see post below), spends so much time outside the chicken yard that I began wondering if she left any eggs laying around the garden so I went exploring this morning and found a beautiful pine-needle 'birdnest' behind the dog house. I felt like I won the Easter Egg hunt on Thanksgiving Day!

We have much to be thankful for today, our son and his girlfriend are still with us after their horrific accident, and we look forward to our Thanksgiving Dinner today with Jimmy, Lindsay and her family, who drove out from Colorado so we could all get to know each other.

Glad to hear you're having a good holiday. It certainly is something to be thankful for, having Jimmy and Lindsay there with you.

We had a Black Australorps a year or two ago, who hung out with a Buff Orpington hen in the horse pasture. We called them "Thelma and Louise". Our youngest son calls them "Black Assalopes". They are certainly an independent breed.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! :)

Happy Thanksgiving, Jim. I'm so thankful that I've met you this year, that your son and his girlfriend survived their accident, that your lovely daughter turned 21 with such a beautiful smile on her face.

happy buy nothing day jim! (i missed thanksgiving)...

sounds like you had a wonderful thanksgiving.

chickens have a way with hiding all their eggs like that. i guess it's their right to not share them with us but man, seeing a bunch of eggs going to waste like that is a sad, sad thing!

how IS jimmy doing? i've thought about him often. i hope his vision is improving.

Egg hunts can be fun. Kids get a real kick out of this. Usually our chickens lay in the nests we provide but every so often, especially with new hens they'll pick some other spot. On rare occassions we don't find the nests and then instead we are greeted one day by the joy of a mother hen with a clutch of chicks.
