After much searching through the undergrowth we still haven't found where the new
Isa Browns are laying their eggs.
So, they have been locked up for 2 days
until they get used to laying in the nest boxes.
When I say locked up, I mean they have
not been let out to roam in the paddock.
The chook yard here is a 25x25 metre
enclosure, big enough, I say.
I told Popeye not to let them out until
they were accustomed to placing the eggs
in a convenient spot for us to collect.
(what would I know?)
Anyway this one was collected from the
nesting box today, all 41 grams. A little beauty !
If only we knew where they have hidden the others
