The first of the chickens laid her first egg today!
The culprit was obvious. It was the larger of the two Cochin-Pescoço pelado crossbreeds, who’s been looking ready to lay any moment for around a fortnight now. Her ‘sister’ might be ready soon if only she could get used to living on a slope and keep her feet for longer. It’s quite comic watching her skiting about the pen, wings flapping, every time she puts a foot down and it lands lower than she expects it to. As for the two green legs, their combs are reddening up nicely, even if they’re still comparatively undeveloped.
