Storm is maturing

I have noticed over the last few days that Storm’s face and tiny comb have turned from grey to pink. She has also had a look in the nest boxes.

I think Storm may be getting ready to start laying soon. Maybe she will beat Spot to laying.

Gold and Snowflake have turned out to be really good layers. Gold has now laid five days running and Snowflake three days running. I have become unused to having such good layers.

We will soon be giving eggs to our neighbours and that is with less than half the flock laying. It will be interesting to see how tiny Storm’s eggs will be.

    She certainly looks in excellent condition and I agree with your thinking that she’ll not be too long in laying. Spot, however, continues to be a real enigma.

      She does look more mature recently. I am so surprised that Spot isn’t laying. I just went out to them and Spot jumped on my back for the first time. She used to be so skittish that I was quite surprised. She has really gained in confidence and she looks stunning.

    I wonder whether they’ll be like Cadbury mini eggs!! xx

    She looks such a sweet little girl, her legs look very long.

      She is such a sweet girl and has such long legs and neck. When she stretches she is so tall although tiny in body. I just can’t seem to catch a photo of her when stretched.
