Poppy returns to the lay
August 10, 2011 § Leave a comment
And now Poppy has started laying again. It’s funny – when she’s in lay, she’s the dippiest of dippy-birds (well, more like Thumper, in her case). But she doesn’t always give you much warning that she’s going to start. (Unlike Lily, who will plough furrows with her keel for a good week beforehand …) But yes, she’s back, and with no fuss whatsoever. A lovely 58 g brown egg.
Now we just have to wait for her to go broody again … 33 eggs, anybody?!
