Gabrielle joins the action

May 19, 2011 § Leave a comment

After almost a month of groaning, moaning, scrarking and stomping in and out of the nestbox, Gabriele has finally produced her first egg! Not exactly huge – 41 g – especially given how big a girl she is (2.81 kg when we weighed her three weeks ago). But it is very nice to finally have her laying. Yay Gabby! Colour-wise, she’s closer to Neroli’s slight tinting rather than Lily’s brilliant whiteness.

But what is it about Dorkings and making ungodly noises when preparing to lay?!
