Then we have what I call the Introverts. These hens are at the lowest end of the pecking order, they've been bullied and put in their place by the collective, but they're fine with that as long as everyone leaves them alone to do their chicken thing in peace. These girls are the ones who make me work for my egg haul each day, climbing, and crawling, and reaching for their clandestine nests. Luckily for me, they are pretty consistent, so once I locate their favored nesting spot I don't have to go on an egg hunt.
Below, you can see some of the places these reclusive hens have chosen to nest. The first row shows the hay barn where I get to climb a ladder to reach two different nesting spots and get covered in hay. If I'm really lucky, I'll bang my head on the support beams climbing down. The second spot is under an unused chest freezer - this is where I get to crawl and reach for the eggs, praying that's all I'll find under there. :)
