Chicken snippets

Tulip has been broody recently, and pulled out her chest feathers. A broody hen will do this to feather her nest and so that he heat of her chest will keep her eggs warm.

Thankfully she was easier to break than Marble and is over her broodiness, and in finally went back to laying again.

Speaking of eggs, the other day Marble laid the tiniest egg, it was half the size of her usual eggs. It was so funny as she had screamed and shouted for so long after laying it, you'd swear it was enormous.

Here is her mini egg with regular eggs.

In comparison with one of her usual eggs.

There was barely a speck of yolk in it.
