    If I didn't see it with my own eyes, I wouldn't believe it. Ester and Brown Betty are the last survivors of six chicks I got 5 years ago, as day old babies. I found Ester in the nest box this morning sitting on a huge clutch of eggs. When I finished gathering the eggs I went back to check on Ester. She was standing up in the nest box but looked strange so I was petting her when all of a sudden she gave a push and out slid her egg. What an amazing girl she is. She has always been my favourite. Way to go Ester.[​IMG]

    She looks lusciously healthy!
    What has her egg production been like over 5 years?
