Since I was out in the backyard with the camera this afternoon I thought I should take a picture of the birds. They’ve grown a bit more since I last snapped any shots of them. We’re getting probably five eggs on average per day, some days 7 some 4. The curly toed mutt still hasn’t laid…is it an Ameraucana, a Wellsummer, a boy? Who knows. The Cuckoo Maran went broody in August and suffered quite a bit of separation from the flock (or coop/house more precisely, but that involved being stuck out in the expansion run alone) during the days before she decided she didn’t need to nest 24/7 and that food and water and life outside were more interesting. Just this week we’ve finally gotten eggs from her again after nearly three weeks off.
