Today I found Emerald’s first egg of the year in the corner of the chicken shed next to Freckles egg.
Emerald’s egg is shorter and wider than Speckles and has a little more colour although that doesn’t show in the photograph. I knew she would lay soon after her practice.
Whereas Speckles has laid all her eggs in the nest box Emerald laid her egg in the corner of the chicken shed next to Freckles egg. This seems to be the trend at the moment. Well done Emerald!
