Atlas's favorite activity as of late is to help collect and deliver eggs. She started doing this on her own and completely caught me off guard one day when she very gently laid an egg on my lap while I was working. She is so gentle in nature and has the absolute softest mouth.
Before you think "Oh gross! Why did you let the dog put one of the eggs you eat in her mouth?!" it's because she is going to be the one eating this one. Whenever we have an excess of eggs we cook up the inside and feed it back to the chickens and dogs and we crush up the shells as a calcium supplement for the hens. So after she delivers the eggs inside to be washed and cooked she gets rewarded with a yummy treat.
P.S. Please ignore my messy yard. I'm overhauling my vegetable, fruit and pollinator gardens and it's been quite the process. It'll look less like a dump when I'm done! 🤞
