rain and wind
My poor girls are scratching around in mud, their feet have soles of caked on mud like they are wearing platform shoes....... :-( The wind blew the door across their nest box yesterday so when I went to collect their eggs there were none to be found. Then I noticed they had laid them on their sunbathing shelf.....clever girls. They must have felt very exposed and vulnerable doing it there though, so today I have tied the door in place so that they can get to their cosy dark space.
