Good to hear that production is picking up in your flock. I've got another new one come online too and she is laying teeny tiny, but ever so pretty, little blue eggs. She is one of my farmyard mutts and so far I haven't been able to pin it down to which of the three pullets from my last hatch it is. Also pleased to report that the older girls that came into lay and then stopped a few weeks ago, are now starting back up again. Unfortunately one of them is Anna (blue hybrid) who lays thin shelled eggs and the last two days I've had a messy nest box to clean out as they have been smashed....Argh!
Had a great weekend. Rode out with my sister on Friday and both Rascal and MeMe were really well behaved. We did about 6 miles and Jo even managed to get MeMe to step into a few puddles which was a major breakthrough (it was that shocking day when the heavens kept opening, so we had plenty of nice large puddles to choose from!) Thankfully we timed our ride pretty well, setting off just after a torrential downpour and getting back more or less before the next one, although we did get hit by a hail shower.
Then I was on a Skep beekeeping and making course over the weekend and a birthday supper for Ian's brother on Sat night, I'm now in possession of some basic straw basket making skills and I'm super excited about making a new and traditional hive for my bees.... and maybe even a little egg basket!
My task for the day is to ride Rebel out, but I don't think he will be as well behaved as the others were on Friday somehow! Wish me luck!
Pleased to hear that your eggs arrived promptly and are already cooking. I will be interested to hear about their progress. No sign of any of my lot going broody yet.
