I've had a broody chook sitting on 18 eggs - and look what we found yesterday..
|The black texta marks were to keep track of the eggs - the mama chook was pushed out the way every day by a couple of the older chooks who insisted on laying their eggs in this box - any in the box without a mark were safe to collect|
This is the first - and I've just looked in the box and now there's 3. I can also see another egg with a little hole in it, so now doubt we'll have no. 4 soon. This is my favourite thing for this week - the Circle of Life - don't you just love it?
They're just adorable - but it's awfully hot outside (32c or 90F) and they keep hiding behind their mum - I'll try to get another photo with a few more in the frame when it cools down later.
