Scruffy is laying again. Hallelujah! She started “presenting” hardcore about a week ago, so we knew the eggs were on their way.
She’s laid two eggs in three days. I’m not sure when she laid the first one, but I found it in the morning in the coop under the roost, and frozen solid. I think she dropped it off the roost. Must’ve been a bit of a surprise. Yesterday, though, I could tell she was going to lay because she kept going in and out of the coop, finally settling in the nesting box to lay a perfect little blue egg.
Now Ginger, it’s your turn to start up again. I’ve given up on Liesl. She’s been such a good layer, but she’s five years old now. She’ll be “retiring” this spring.
