Flame and Sugar are laying again

Yesterday Flame laid her first egg since her broody spell. Today Sugar laid her first egg since her broody spell and Flame laid her second egg.

It’s two weeks since both these girls came out of their broody spell. I knew Flame was getting ready to lay again as she has been practising for the last couple of days.

I was surprised that Sugar was getting ready too as she had been broody for such a long time but yesterday she was in the grit then looking in the nest box and today she settled in the nest box and got her egg laid.

Flame and Sugar are back in lay

From the left is Storm’s egg then sugar’s egg. Next is Snowflakes egg then Gold’s egg with Flame’s egg on the right.

I was just on the verge of buying some eggs as we only had two regular girls laying but now with four regular girls laying there is no need to buy any. The eggs should soon build up again.

Well done girls!

    Well done girls!! It looks like Gold’s eggs are becoming bigger than Snowflake’s now! xx

      You are so observant. I too have noticed that Gold’s eggs have got bigger and are now bigger than snowflakes. She lays more frequently too so maybe that’s why they have got bigger. xx

    Thats good, must be lovely getting lots of eggs.

    • Funnily enough, as it’s been so long that you have been without your computer, Sugar is now broody again. She laid her usual eight eggs before going broody. However we now have our new girl laying so still the same amount of eggs and enough to start giving the neighbours some.
