Chipmunk... broody mama hen!

Chipmunk has been clucking and losing belly feathers lately.  Poor girl, she isn't even a year old and she's going broody!  She decided to sleep on the nest tonight.



Egglantine layed an egg!  It was so tiny and cute, a perfect egg in miniature!  There was a yolk and the shell was nicely shaped, too.  Here are two eggs, the bigger one is a normal Serama egg for comparison:




And here's Egglantine herself:

  2. Gonna set the broody?

    Nothing better then seeing a momma with babies.
