Well, this is a first!
Just went out to the nest box to collect the chicken eggs. The nests are in a shed where the
free range hens can lay and eat and roost at night. There is a gap at the top of the door and a pop hole and sparrows (seemingly by the hundred!) zoom in and out all day eating the hen food. We don´t begrudge them using us as their free restaurant!

When I collected the 2 hen eggs, there beside them was a sparrow egg! Poor thing will have
to find a better nest than that I am afraid.

It did make me smile though, especially with this gloomy, wet weather.

Not much of an omelette from that! Those sparrows sure do hone in on the home comforts of a hen house; reckon I muck out the sparrows more than chucks here!!

So you know the problems then! Yes, they tend to sit on the edge of the door and
er ... deposit their droppings on the step! Little darlings ...!!!!
As I said, I can afford to feed them and my chickens don´t go short.
