It was ever so exciting, we've been wondering when they'd start laying and assumed the cold dark weather would put them off until the Spring. We did notice recently that they've started squatting down when you try to pick them up rather than running away which apparently is a behaviour they will do for the cockerel.
Of course now we've got to decide what we're going to do with these two precious eggs and how we can share them between the six of us.
Oh my gosh! I went out while I was making my lunch to give them a pear to eat and couldn't resist another peek inside their house and look what I found!
A third egg, and it was still warm :-)
How funny that they all started laying on the same day. And they all layed in the nest box too, clever girls
The black girl on the left laid the third egg, she's called Maude. The grey girl is called Merry and the orangey one is called Betsy. Thanks ladies!
