Yesterday afternoon I knew that Marmite was about to lay her second egg. It was only the day after her first one but she was very vocal and then after trying out all the nest boxes she settled herself in the middle one.
Ebony and Smoke had both laid in the middle nest box that morning so this is obviously the current favourite. This time Marmite was out after about half an hour. I checked the nest box and had to smile. There was another tiny egg.
It was slightly bigger than the first one and this time it was egg shaped instead of round and smooth instead of having a calcium blob on it.
As a comparison I am showing her first egg again before the second egg.
Marmite’s second egg on the left, Smoke’s in the middle and Ebony’s egg on the right. So it’s a three egg day of sorts!
She has done well to lay two days running and I am imagining that they will get a bit bigger each day. Once again I am interested to see what the next one is like.
