John, Melow is so pretty. Her nest is so inviting too, so round with lovely colored eggs.
Kizanne, I don't know if they learn not to squish their eggs and chicks, but I was surprised this time to see my Henrietta sitting on her eggs with her legs way out to both sides, as if she was doing "the splits". She did that a lot, and I don't know if they all do or if that was just her method. Seems like that would have given her pulled leg muscles, but it didn't. I don't even know if Henrietta was trying not to squish eggs or it was just more comfortable that way, unlikely as that seems.
