Afternoon Eggs

Stopped by the coop this afternoon and found all three of these in the same next, must be their favorite.  I noticed that when the eggs are in the nest, a single hen will sit on all of them to keep them warm.  I'm sure this is behavior that stems from the desire to hatch chicks.  As we don't have a rooster so none of these will ever be hatched but the 'girls' don't know that.  What you see in the photo is a speckled brown egg, a standard brown and a green egg from one of our Americaunas.
