Smoke lays an egg

This morning Smoke was very vocal and was looking in the nest boxes. She soon settled in her favourite nest box next to the chicken shed.

When I next checked on her she was back out and had laid an egg.

I checked back on last year and she laid nine eggs last December. Smoke is the only one of the little girls that lays all year round. Well done Smoke!

      It was a surprise. She didn’t show any sign until this morning and then once settled in the nest box she soon got the job done. They say that seramas can lay over winter but Smoke is the only one of my girls that actually does.

    How lovely! I think I only ever got eggs over winter the first year I had my seramas – never afterwards xx
