Five and a half dozen eggs, that's how many eggs some friends and I found one of my hens hoarding in the rafters of the barn. I suspected I wasn't finding all the eggs, but 5 1/2 dozen? That's ridiculous. I don't even have a rooster, so she had no hope of hatching them. And can you imagine if you had that many baby chicks to look after at one time? Unfortunately, the eggs are all too old use. It's pretty hot up there, and they had gone bad. Silly, silly hen.
