It was lovely, yesterday, to see the three bigger girls dust bathing together. The favourite dust bath spot for the bigger girls, since the hot weather, is under the metal table. It is in shade all day and I dampen the soil once a day and being shady it stays a bit damp.

It’s not great for photos though, because of the table legs, but I managed one reasonable shot.

Dust bathing together

It is good to see these girls doing a bit of bonding.

      It is lovely to see them all getting along so well. Flame has laid her seventh egg in a row today. Ebony laid six in a row then a day off then laid again. I can’t believe what prolific layers they are. Speckles has also four eggs since she restarted. The entire flock are getting along really well.

    Really good laying performance and I agree with your other readers – you’d think they were from the same hatch.
