Sugar lays egg number six

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.

The girls go mad for egg and tomato
It will be gone in seconds
It’s soon all gone

I think we can safely say the girls enjoyed that albeit only for a few seconds.

    Sugar looks in brilliant condition in these photos. It is good if there is a bigger gap in her laying, as that gives some sort of shell longer to form. They do so love treats of that ilk and you’re so right – blink and everything is gone!

      That’s the weird thing, Sugar does look in really good condition but she still spends half her time just sitting on the ground. The other half of her time she looks completely normal. I love seeing them at the treats.
