Beautiful lilies and Smoke is broody again

Our lilies have been amazing this year. I took some photos before the rain came to bash them down.

Orange lilies

Smoke is broody again. She has laid eight eggs in eleven days. Smoke is out of lay for longer than she is in lay. This year has been a record even for her. This is Smoke’s seventh broody spell so she is broody on average once every month.

I guess I should be used to it by now and I guess nothing is ever going to change her.

    I know I shouldn’t, but I am smiling at Smoke’s sheer persistence.

    I know a little of what you’re going through. Jasmine is broody again for the second time this year but still no sign of Bubble being broody! xx

      One girl broody, twice, so far. Bliss! Sounds like Bubble won’t be a broody the same as Shadow isn’t and Spangle has also never gone broody although in her case she doesn’t lay very often. Shadow lays well then takes a short break which is much better than going broody. xx
