Signs of Spring

Other then the ducks laying and the turkeys showing off, one of the Easter Eggers has set a new nest. EE#3 is quickly becoming my favourite for her mothering skills and enthusiasm! I had to remove her little chick (the one she adopted) from the big group to the smaller group, to give her peace and quiet because even at 4 months the little chick just wants to be with her hen.

She's sitting on 11 eggs, and finally I got smart! I put a little X on all the eggs that are supposed to be in there (the other ladies still like to sneak in and lay one of their own!); and I put two XXs on the eggs that I've candled fertile.

Spring is going to be exciting around here!!
