We have a second egg – identical to the first one, and this time it was definitely Pearl’s, so it’s highly likely that Thursday’s was hers too. So the current rate is one every 48 hours, but we’re threatened with twenty per week once they all get the hang of it. But we don’t have any plans to rear bacon at home just yet.
One useful difference is that this egg was laid in one of the nesting boxes, as opposed to out in the pen, so it’s not only a lot cleaner but was also much easier to find. This is why we’re certain that it was Pearl’s, as she was spotted in the same nesting box for much of the morning.
