Chick bulletin + 13 weeks

Twenty-five degrees at 11am. Patchy sunshine.

Today's visit to Palazzo Pollo brought a nice, if perplexing, surprise - a half-size egg nestling in the nest box alongside all the others. It seems one of the girls from our February brood has come of age and started to produce. It's perplexing because she's only at 13 weeks, and in theory this is a little early to be at point of lay.

Can any other chicken keepers out there shed any light?

In the world of the chicken,where the wood and the trees are one and the same, anything is possible. But you gotta love em and, looking at your pic, one can clearly see that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery...

How considerate of the chicken to adapt the size of its eggs to the appetite of small children. ingenious!
