I Should Be Writing #1

What the wind does to the temporary run...



Today's eggs, in which we analyze stress...


full clutch this morning of nine eggs...might get up to 2 more today.



close up of the two that are stressed...middle top in previous photo. One has come out twice in oblong shape with stress marks and a thin shell. The other is consistently a rough white shell on half the egg, frequently dropped from the roost or in the pine needles. I think the girl we lost was one of our better producers. We've only had one clutch of 11 eggs since.
