Smoke is laying again

Ebony laid her last egg on the last day of November which I thought was quite amazing. I thought that was the end of eggs for this year and resorted to buying shop eggs.

To my surprise Smoke started laying again. It was two weeks after she had stopped being broody and she has now laid two eggs in the last three days. I have just looked back at last year and Smoke laid throughout December.

Well done Smoke. In other news Salmon is much improved with only the occasional hint of a wheeze now. Anyone less tuned in to the girls wouldn’t notice it at all. I am pleased to say that all the girls look great.

    Good to have some eggs; we were lucky in that Blackie has started again, so far has laid 12 and not yet gone broody. She’s doing well for a 4-year old. Still nothing from Speckles or Sprinkles, although both look in peak condition.

      It is a bonus having a few eggs until as you say they go broody again. Speckles and Sprinkles are probably waiting until spring now and who can blame them!
