Mango’s first egg of the year

This morning Mango was being very vocal and I felt sure she was about to lay her first egg of the year. We had to go out for a few hours so I didn’t get a photo of Mango in the nest box. But when we returned there were two eggs in the nest box by the gate.

Only Dot and Cloud have been laying so I knew this was Mango’s egg. It is smaller than Cloud’s egg.

The egg stand shows the difference in size better. Cloud and Mango are the same size and yet Cloud’s eggs are longer in shape than both Mango and Storm’s eggs. Mango has laid her first egg of the year a week after Cloud started laying.

So for now we are back to three girls laying. Well done Mango!

    Great to have another layer. I have some who have not yet started and am starting to wonder if they will.

      It is great to see them starting to lay again. I know what you mean when you wonder if they ever will. Sugar is a complete mystery and Autumn is also, with laying all winter and yet not now. Odd thing is that she still goes and sits in her corner of the shed every other day as if she thinks she should be laying but doesn’t. She looks great though so I am not going to worry too much.
