This morning I went about my typical chores in the yard, with my typical black-and-white chicken underfoot. All of a sudden, I realized I wasn’t tripping over Millie anymore….she had disappeared. My spidy-sense began to tingle…that bird was off laying an egg! For anyone who hasn’t read the last entry, I only just discovered THE FIRST EGG two days ago. I suspected it was Millie who had done it, but I could not be sure. I wanted some proof, and I was about to get it. I scanned the yard, and stumbled upon a curious thing: a curry bush in my herb garden shimmying like the rhythm was gonna get it.
Upon closer inspection, I found my sneaky little girl hard at work, building the cutest little nest in her curried little cavern.
After a grueling 10 minute labor….
There is a definite color and size variation between the two eggs, which leaves me wondering if the first one might not have been Millie’s after all. The plot thickens….but in the meantime….curried eggs, anyone?
