|Our first egg! Brown, but the flash makes it look white.|
Yesterday, she gave us a softshell (shell-less) egg. The dogs got to eat that one, as the membrane got dirty, having landed under one of the roosting bars. And as of today, we collected another small brown egg from the nesting boxes, another Octavia offering I am sure. If she's an Australorp, she is starting out quite prolific! Sex links are typically heavy layers for the first three years, and then they sort of burn out.
|Octavia, out with the guineas.|
