    Blue's main squeeze Penny has gone broody for the first time, in a wooden box full of folding chairs on the porch. She hadn't been paying her rent lately and vanishing for hours on end, we found out why, she's got her hidey hole! But she's sitting on one egg,,, so hopefully she'll be adding to it? There was nothing but some old leaves and blow dirt in the box (used to be Steven's toy box, 40"x36"x18") so he put straw in it for her and while he was doing it she pounced on him. She doesn't do things like that! It's too cold still to hatch outside, but we are going to let her sit.
