Today is a day for some celebration, my turkey has finally laid her first egg! You may remember that I had previously been casting aspersions about my male turkeys ability to induce, or perhaps seduce his mate into an egg laying mode but clearly and happily I was wrong.
Now I just have to wait until I have a few more before (fingers crossed) hatching starts!
The hens and ducks also laid a grand total of 29 eggs in the past two days. We had suspected them of laying out during the day so we kept them in for two days (with food and water), and lo and behold we have a glut of eggs. I almost wish now though, that we hadn’t stumbled upon this revelation because I have no idea how to use up all of these eggs; I love to bake but not that much!
Praise where praise is due though, Horace and Sebastien have proved themselves to be worthy additions to the farm. They truly deserve some treats, which is just what I’m going out to give them now.
