Chicken News, eggs too !

Our hens were making a lot of noise today, so I looked in the hen house. Despite having 2 nest boxes, as you can see 2 Light Sussex are squashed into just one, they do favour the right nest box.
I checked 15 mins later and 2 eggs had been laid and one of the Ex-Battery hens was taking an interest.
When I checked later on I could see a few more eggs, and the ex-battery hen was pushing underneath the Lt Sussex!
So when all the commotion had settled down I looked into the hen house to find 5 eggs in the right nest box, we have had 5 twice before. 
So far this year we have had: 69 in Jan, 61 in Feb and 54 so far this month, 184 in total!

Thanks for reading/returning. Ian
