Yesterday Speckles laid her sixth egg of the year. Apart from her first egg of the year in March Speckles has now laid another five in eleven days. That is practically an all time record for her! I thought she may only lay six eggs this year and she has done so already which has come as a surprise.
When Speckles does lay her eggs are enormous. I know egg photos are probably boring everyone but they are good for my records so I am going to put another one here.
For size comparison Speckles egg is on the left, Flame’s egg is in the middle and Marmite’s egg is on the right. These were yesterday’s three eggs.
In other news Ebony, Smoke and Vanilla continue to be broody. After a two week break from her last broody spell Jasmine sat in the corner of the chicken shed for a couple of hours and I felt sure that she would lay an egg. However she eventually came out without laying. This means she is getting ready to start laying again as these little girls often have false alarms to begin with.
