"OLLIE"

Yesterday was a perfect day to finish up "Ollie" he was finally able to join his new friends. Unfortunately it is time to pack them away until next year, you can see Ollie is not happy about this by the look on his face. This morning as I went to gather eggs, Pip greeted me at the door and was soon joined by Willa. They were quite animated, it was as if they couldn't wait to show me something.
My oh my those girls of mine have been working overtime.
Eight beautiful eggs.
It has lead me to wonder what is so special about this particular nest box.
There are four nest boxes, but this one seems to be the favorite. Is it the amount of chips? location? or could it be once one egg is laid and still warm, it prompts another to jump in and go about her business. All I can say is what a delight to collect warm eggs first thing in the morning. Girls I am very grateful, keep up the good work!

Wonderful pumpkins, I wish I were that talented.

The girls had reason to be proud.

Thank you ladies for the nice comments on my pumpkins. Eight out of ten of my girls are now laying daily. Wish you all lived closer so I could share my eggs!

Julie Ollie is darling. You are right though he looks a bit sad at the thought of being packed away for a year. It is a fun thing this morning to see Pip and Willa and I see the egg count is 100! WooHoo!!! And what pretty eggs they are!
