EggsBizzy Lizzy our Scots Dumpy and Matilda our Australorp are laying eggs regularly now. We've had 2 eggs a day for 3 days in a row, then only 1 egg from Matilda (Bizzy Lizzy must have been having a day off) then both layed again today.
RosieToday I noticed that Rosie had a really puffy face - poor thing. The first thing I noticed was her eyes were squinting instead of being fully open. Then upon closer inspection I saw that her face was all swollen and a lot paler than usual.
Perhaps she has eaten something bad today whilst out in the garden? We do have a mouldy log up under our cherry trees... At least there is something physically wrong with her, makes me think that there will be something I can do to help her. I had thought she might be pining for her sister Didee who died recently, and if that were the case I wouldn't know what to do to help. So I'll start looking into puffy face symptoms this evening and see what I can do to help.
Rosie took herself off to the nesting box and went to sleep, so I let her stay there.
Oh I do hope she'll still be there in the morning.
