Speckles is definitely getting ready to lay again

For the last couple of days when I have gone to stroke Speckles she has dropped into a squat. She is definitely getting ready to lay. Today she sat in the nest box nearest the chicken shed and was piling pine shavings on to her back.

I really thought she was going to produce her first egg of the year but she later came out with out laying an egg. Even an older girl sometimes needs a bit of practice.

    Speckles has been in and out of the nest box again this morning. Her comb usually ends up about twice the size it is now. I love seeing it when it’s huge too!

    Smoke laid again this morning after a two week break. Marmite has had a three week break so far. Smoke really is a good layer for a serama. xx
