The Dorking is finally laying! She’s been showing signs for ages and when I least expected it (as always) there was a lovely off white colored egg.
Irene laid her first egg early December, Peggy early January, Meggy a few weeks later and now the Dorking 28th February. (Her name never stuck. I think of her simply as the Dorking.)
She has laid an egg everyday, which is brilliant – Irene lays up to 8 days in a row, Peggy 4 and Meggy 3 but initially they may lay only every other day.
