She did well. Nice egg, no marks, no blood. It's a little long/slim but maybe it's because she's so young.
She's sleeping now :hug2:

That's why she gave you that look last night when you took out her castle!
Yea. I told you she was off. Sleepy + cage territorial + dino walk.
She has been non stop shredding the paper all day. I don´t know what to do about that. Maybe just line it for night time and leave it unlined during the day...

Sorry for late reply, I took a funny turn but feeling ok now :)

I wonder if she'll lay a full clutch like Aoife. Will you let her nest or just see how it goes?

I took the egg because she is so young. I´ll let you know if I get a second - I think I will.

@Eloy if you were here I´d give you it... but it would be barely a mouthful. My boyfriend won´t eat them and I don´t eat eggs at all.

They are such amazing little paper cutters!
It's really neat to watch... It's like her beak are a pair of sissors.

Buddy tears the paper in (like) strips. I'd get you a pic but I changed the paper hours ago.

Henry can shred paper like a bomb went off.... Casey can make paper mulch.

Such a cute video! I wish Sprout was that cuddly, but we have a loooong way to go :wacky:

Sprout laid one egg, but stopped (thank goodness). Egg laying always stresses me out! Even though I know I’m providing everything to make sure there are no complications.

How did it go? did you take her egg away? did she have another?
Sorry, I thought I posted here publicly but I must have only shared the video privately. She laid a second egg, and stopped. The second egg was a lot of days after the first, I can´t remember exactly off the top of my head..5 maybe. That was before we found the quaker, before I went to the UK etc. No more since :)
She has had her house taken :lol: so now she sleeps under the bridge. It´s adorable.

I took the eggs because she was so young - she was completely not interested in the object that fell from her rear. If this had been Lapis, I would have let her have some dummys to sit on.

Here´s the vid (of the second egg),

How old is Sprout?
I was a little stressed with this clutch because it was the youngest hen and I was due to leave the country. I didn´t want her laying when I´m not here to keep an eye on her. I worried that my other half may miss some key signs of any abnormalities. But she didn´t lay any more :)

Sprout is 4 years old and she started laying eggs when she was 2 yrs old. The first time she laid 3 eggs and sat beside them :confused: Now whenever she lays an egg or two, she just ignores them. My vet told me to take away anything shreddable, but it still doesn't work. So I just let her do her thing and change the light cycle in her room. That worked in the past with my other female lovie.
