Today we set our first batch of eggs of the year, Cream Legbars. It’s always a nervy time, making sure all the incubator settings are correct, nervously listening out for the whirring as the eggs turn every 45 mins as the incubator has failed in the past, keeping the room to a steady temperature. At the same time we had “the changeover”; the Legbars were let our of the Eglu and the French Copper Black Marans went in instead. The Legbars seem happy to be free except that Bluey, our Blue Legbar, tries to beat them up at any opportunity. Hopefully she’ll get fed up with that very, very soon. Chico is slowly starting to forgive me but Bilbo and his girls now hate me. Roll on Easter!
