Yesterday we finally got round to blocking up the pop hole in the old shed. We have decided to leave it until next year to decide what to do with the old shed.
Smoke has laid eight eggs in ten days and has now gone broody again. We seem to permanently have one or two broodies on the go.
Ebony laid another egg in the wooden shelter, that’s two days running. I have no idea why she has started laying there when we have three perfectly good nest boxes.
Marmite’s purple patch has faded to mauve but the good news is that she has pins.
It will be so good to see Marmite feathered again. I think the purple spray has been a success.
