EggsDespite the miserable weather we had yesterday, we were given three precious eggs from our four hens. I think they are from Matilda - top hen, Bizzy Lizzy our Scots Dumpy and ...wait for it.. Didee! Yay for a hard shell! I think it is hers because it is much lighter in colour to the ones that Rosie has laid so far, and it had some yellow yolk on the shell. This could easily be remnants of her last two soft-shelled lays of recent days. I saw Didee peck at Matilda's egg to unfortunately, and she cracked it slightly. So shall have to get outside as soon as possible and remove eggs quickly to deter her from the habit of egg eating.
