Today Sugar laid her sixth egg. She didn’t look poorly before laying this time. The shell was the same as the last one. It had a soft spot in the middle with a bit of crazing round it. She has now laid six eggs in eighteen days. Last time she laid six eggs in nine days so she is taking longer to lay them which I think is better for her.
Sugar also isn’t broody as yet so she may lay a few more this time. She used to lay eight eggs each time until she started having problems this year.
Once again I scrambled Sugar’s egg in a little olive oil and water, added some chopped tomato and gave it back to the girls.
I thought I would take the opportunity to get some group photos. I had to snap them really quickly as the egg and tomato mixture lasted seconds. It is the girls’ very favourite treat of all.
I think we can safely say the girls enjoyed that albeit only for a few seconds.
