Re: Egg shape and size

I'm not sure how old she is. If you recall I got her from a battery farm, BHWT, May 2018, so guessing she must be 4? I also got Barbie the same time and her eggs are always the same, smooth. I guess like people some fair better than others. So long as she looks ok then I will not worry. I just felt ...

Re: Egg shape and size

I don't know, Icemaiden. She came from a battery farm. She's always laid large eggs, some with 2 yolks. Average size is 80-82g. Her eggs have always had a lot of white inside , not large yolks.

Re: Frogspawn question

I've been out to visit my frogspawn today, but not sure if it is alive. Its difficult to see. I did notice that in some of the other trenches further down the forest that there's lots more spawn, some developing nicely into tadpoles, but unfortunately for them, a female duck has decided they are a t...

Re: Badger and chickens

Hello Chicks and Bees and welcome to the forum, where I am sure a lot of the more experienced hen keepers will reply soon.
