To be honest, she looked really cute, picking up bits of bark and straw and tucking them in around herself, and she did a good job of burying the egg in the straw afterwards.
All the new chickens are laying eggs now, so we get between 5 and 6 a day. The geese are all laying as well, we get at least one goose egg per day, and the most we have had is 4 eggs from three geese in a day!! They taste divine with bright orange yolks.
The weather here has been wonderful lately, lots of bright, sunny days. I planted my broad beans last Saturday having been told that if you plant them early it helps stop blackfly later. I am making plans as to what to plant this year. My veg plot is smaller this year. We had to fence off an area of garden to stop the geese trampling it. I am not going to bother with potatoes this year, we get alot of Colorado Beetle in the this area, and it is a real pain going round the area 4 or 5 times a day looking for beetles on leaves. I plan to plant lots of beans, tomatoes, parsnips for Ian (yuk) and some squashes. I would also like to get lots more fruit bushes and a plum tree.
