Emerald’s first egg of the year

Today I found Emerald’s first egg of the year in the corner of the chicken shed next to Freckles egg.

Emerald’s first egg of the year on the left and Speckles egg on the right

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!

    Good news indeed; laying always suggests healthy birds and Emerald, despite her years, looks in brilliant condition.
