They are chronic!
At least there was a Campine egg under Wrold this morning, which makes more sense
but why they are suddenly nesting together I do not know. :idunno

What's really funny about that is the fact that Wrold found it necessary to lay her egg in an already cramped box...silly girls...:gig This really is cute though!!! :love
Nope, not even Wrold's egg. 🙄 It is very cute but I can see I am going to have trouble breaking them & the weather is not helping. They were in the little coop when the storm broke & there isn't enough shelter so Wrold got pretty soaked. I brought her inside to dry her out a bit but that did not make her happy. She was freaking out so much I was as quick as possible.

Oops...I read that incorrectly or more like I didn't remember it correctly...what a senior moment...it was one of your Campine's eggs...lol

Poor little girl...getting her dry was a good thing to do...whether she thought so or not!

It's an easy mistake to make. :) The Campines & Wyandottes are very similar in temperament & sort of in looks.

Hilarious! 🤣 This has caused me so much angst[ :gig] I actually had to go & investigate the etymology because what on earth is the connection between a young bird & young fish. Well, here it is for the nerds amongst us! :lau

*1680s, "very young bird," earlier (1630s) "unformed, lumpish person" and used at various times for any sort of flabby mass, such as sofa cushions; probably from a Scandinavian word ...*
Squab would be a small cushion for me.
