Sunday's collection featured these eggs. Check out the one on the left - enormous! Not sure who laid it, though a Maran looks most likely.
Meanwhile, Mrs Difficult Maran has gone "hedge" again (phrase courtesy of E). And a different hedge. Fortunately I caught her looking shifty near our fence earlier in the day, and then slightly later found the egg. A much more convenient spot so I'm hoping she'll stick at it this time. I still suspect a Black Rock of going hedge but she (and who knows which) is being a lot craftier and more discreet so I have no idea which chicken to watch, when or where.
And finally, here are Mavis, Gladys and Ethel, the Black Rocks, having a fine old time at the bottom of a conifer in my garden.
