Crashie did lay an egg overnight! It wasn't completely shell-less like they have been, but it wasn't completely solid, either. I'd call it thin-shelled. That's an improvement at least!
She's up to her usual antics today.
I went out to the kitchen to make myself lunch earlier, and her living room pen is out of sight from there, so naturally she was stirred. She would do her little quack-quack-quack routine, and I would tell her I was sorry, but I was making lunch! Every time, she would settle back down, like all she needed was an apology for taking so long.
She started to air-bathe in her living room pen, and she always throws shavings everywhere when she does this, so I took her to the big tub again for a bath and she had a blast! While she was drying and preening herself on the vanity, I was trying to trim her nails, which worked for the most part, but I got to the last nail and she kept standing on her own foot as if to block me from it! And, to top it off, she went right back to air-bathing as soon as I put her back in her living room pen.
She's become spoiled, I think. Any time I'm eating something in the living room, she just assumes she gets some of it. She's especially fond of peanut butter sandwiches.
Anyway, this time, I wasn't even eating anything (I had finished lunch by then), but she must have thought I was because she tried to swallow my fingers when I reached over toward her!
The little goober!
Right now, she's sitting next to me chirping, and every time I look toward her, she does this head bobbing / nodding thing. So every time I say something, I turn to her and say, "Right, Crashie?" and, of course, she nods in agreement.
I ought to get fresh pictures of her... For now, I do have pictures of the babies and Mama, though! I know I've been awfully focused on them lately, but I mean, come on... They're adorable!
When I peeked in on them, this is what I saw. Naughty babies and mama spilled their food!!
Indi is playing innocent on this one. "What?"
I try to hold the babies at least once a day so that they're used to it, and this time I thought I'd take pictures of them while I was at it. Indi, as always, is a charmer:
Bennie's not sure he likes this!
Marka, he's always cooperative for my silly ideas!
And Winter... Not so much.
We've been trying out our new wings lately! Here's Bennie and Marka playing around! Bennie looks like a little jet plane!
Mama and Winty
The babies went under Mama for nap time, but before I left, I saw this. Bennie.
Mama's keeping an eye on things while Bennie goofs around.
Meanwhile, up front...
If anyone doubts that these babies are Margie's...
