Very handsome gang. They look strangely bald without combs!

I found the above picture of Blackberry (and her friend Apple who was a Blacktail). You can't really see Blackberry's beautiful golden colouring on her breast, but it's the only photo I've got as the flash drive with several year's photos stored on it developed a problem. This was a stray picture I stored on a CD.

Well, finally the first blue egg has arrived! It's a slightly greyish blue and I haven't seen the inside yet. Must be Mama Olga's as Igor's are due to be more olive coloured.

Coincidentally, my Rhode rocks started laying a few days ago.  I'm already getting 4 eggs a day from the six of them - small at the moment but they will be a good size quite quickly.  They're lovely birds, I really like them.

Both girls laying now - approx two eggs each in three days. The blue-grey are actually Igor's - the crossbreed, and Mama Olga's are smaller and bluer. Had enough to give two to our egg-man and one each to sis, BiL and niece who popped in at the w/e.

My two Marigolds haven't laid since the autumn (although they are getting on for five years old, so they are quite old ladies). But with the recent restrictions because of bird flu, they're probably so fed-up with being kept in that an egg or two is out of the question!
