Annabelle is one of my funnier chickens. Nugget is the other one. I really need to get Annabelle recorded when she is talking but anytime I try she is quiet. haahaa! But she talks almost non stop during the day.This is SO FUNNY. What a silly girl. I love seeing them do funny things... the coop cams are like chicken TV hahaha.
I wonder if Hummer and Nugget are slowing down because the time of year...? I think first year they usually keep laying thru the winter though, so I bet you'll keep getting eggs! I'd say 15 eggs in 9 days isn't bad at all for those 2 girls.
I totally understand the no-egg-blues day. I feel like it's been forever since I got one. LOL. Hopefully soon... I have a little carton of eggs on the counter from before "the incident" and I just look at it everyday sadly. I bought eggs at the store and have forbade anyone from eating the last laid eggs until they start again
When I was treating the girls earlier, one of the Midnight Majesty Marans made a SUPER SQUAT and I was so shocked! They are almost 17 weeks old... so maybe after another week or so of getting back to normal will give me some egg surprises
I think time of year has to do with it. They are still above average for their breeds though just seems less in a row and more days off between. I had those 2 weeks that I got 7 from Nugget with 1 day off and that was crazy for her! and Hummer gave the 6 in a row almost all the time which again was crazy! so I like to think they were making up for their lazy sisters at that time. Hummer laid her egg before 7am this morning when their coop door opens so it was still pretty dark out but she always lays super early after a day off.
Oh how exciting about the Marans squatting!!!! Hope next week you have LOTS of eggs to post.
Annabelle seemed to yesterday when I went to pat her but maybe she was just ducking under my hand but seemed a bit different to me. Could be my imagination though since the others don't squat for me where I have a roo. Itzy (my roo) seemed interested in one of my Brahma's the other day but from where I was standing it looked like Rosie (who still has a pretty pale comb and wattles) and not Marshmallow but I could have been wrong. Since the other girls got close tolaying he hasn't been interested in anyone until a bit before they start laying. So I keep hoping to see him with Annabelle or Marshmallow so I know they are close. LOL
