Unlike the other girl’s Dotty laid her second egg the day after her first. There was a lot of egg laying noise going on and I went to take a look at Dotty on the nest but Bluebell was determined to get in on the act too.
I thought that Bluebell wanted to lay as well but then I saw what was causing her interest. Bluebell had already laid and her egg was laying beside Dotty. I took the egg away and calm settled.
Bluebell finally left Dotty to get on with it and when I went back a little later, there was Dotty’s second egg. It wasn’t quite as long as yesterdays but still paler than Pepper’s with little white specks on it. I think I will probably continue to be able to tell Pepper’s and Dotty’s eggs apart. Well done Dotty! Dotty started her egg laying, by laying two days in a row, maybe she is trying to make up for lost time. It will be interesting to see she lays another one tomorrow.
