I had a feeling today that Sugar was getting ready to lay. When I checked on the girls and Sugar was missing I checked the nest boxes. Sugar was in the current favourite nest box by the chicken gate.
When I checked back a bit later Sugar had laid her egg. It had a blood streak on it like a first egg often has. As long as it’s only on the first egg it isn’t a problem.
It’s a week later than Sugar starting laying last year. I am so pleased that she has got her first egg laid successfully because after losing two girls earlier in the year I have become a bit nervous of the girls starting to lay. I just hope that Salmon doesn’t lay again this year.
It’s good to see that sugar is looking good. I know that she will probably only lay for a couple of weeks before she goes broody but we are used to that.
Well done Sugar! She’s so cute! xx
She is cute. Gold is in the nest box at the moment for the first time since her brief broody spell so with luck we are back to three girls laying. xx
Good news. She looks to be in peak condition.
I was quite relieved. She does look great.
That is good news. A sweet little egg.
I was so happy that she has laid and is okay. I love the little eggs.
