    As suspected, it's Ariel who's laying. And we have proof! :)

    It makes sense as she's the only hybrid we have - they've been selectively bred to lay more eggs and for longer, so no surprises really (although it does seem early to go into lay - maybe the freaky weather has had an effect).

    The droopy nest box cam actually helped here!


    Shortly after the egg appeared, Ariel left the nestbox:


    And here's one of Renee looking cute even though she's not laying any eggs :)

    Do you think it's the weird winter weather we've been having?
    We were given two Ariel eggs to eat - can't wait to try them :)

    Well, the rest of nature is completely confused and Nugget isn't known to be an intellectual giant at the best of times...:face-smile:

    We're up to 7 eggs now. All from the one hen. The others are all 'too posh to push'...

    Thanks Red I do miss them but wont get more now as I like to get out and about I am limited now as I have to get back to see to her or G North has to stay at home to look after animals. I just got two cats now and they can go into cattery if need be. Oh still got one snail Ben and the fishes but they look after themselves for a few days. xx
