Frida is back in the game!

Frida has started laying again! Her first egg since she went clucky back in March. (A month when she was the #1 layer, I might add!)
We thought she must be close – she’s been doing more and more exaggerated dippy-birds, and her comb and wattles have lengthened and started looking quite juicy. And yesterday she definitely had the floppily bonnet going on. (That’s “a floppy comb” to the uninformed.) Anyway, she was in and out of the house this morning, and tucked herself in the nestbox with Poppy. (Why, when there’s a perfectly good unoccupied nestbox next door …) Then at 11 or so she gave her funny little “Egg!” cackle, and there it was. 44g, and very pointy. (Definitely her egg-shape.)
The photo shows her egg (44g) between a 50g Claire egg and a 60g Bessie egg.
