Another girl has started laying

This morning Dot was in the nest box by the gate.

Dot in the nest box

Dot now has a lovely red comb. I had felt for the last few days that she was getting ready to lay again. It wasn’t long before I heard the egg shout and when I checked Dot had laid. Her egg has her signature little calcium bubbles on it and a faint blood streak as first eggs of the season often have.

Not long after Gold laid her egg in the same nest box and then Storm laid in her usual nest box next to the chicken shed. We now have our first, three egg, day of the year.

I had just bought some eggs but hopefully they will be the last that I will need to buy for a while. Three egg laying girls should give us enough eggs. Well done Dot!

      Dot’s comb is so different when laying compared to over winter. I love her comb too. She is such a different looking girl because she has black eyes whereas all the other girls have gold/orange eyes.
