The Mystery of the Missing Eggs - Part II

We knew our hens must be laying elsewhere when our egg count dropped from 7 per day to 3 or 4 or 5 per day. And yesterday Detective Inspector McCulloch caught Malcolm in the act and found three separate cashes of eggs, resulting in the above crop! We think Malcolm herself has recently started laying. What a great find! They were all underneath some very private bushes.
I took the above photo on my morning walk. I love the wooded area near where I live, beside the pigs. It's quiet and serene and choc-full of nature.

Hagos is home today for 16 hours. I took the day off to be with him. He and Meg are in bed, catching up on sleep :)
