Lucinda's Eggs

Well she did it ... she laid her 2 egg clutch as expected this weekend.

She was giving signs that it was coming, like digging in her lay box ... hanging out inside her tree "house" thing ... and being restless on Saturday....

Early this afternoon I found her 2 eggs in the bottom of her tree. I don't know why I bother with a lay-box for her... half the time she lays them in the tree.

Now, after a bit more research, I am worried that IF her and Max DID get busy, maybe I tossed out fertile eggs. It seems I need to wait a week after they are laid to be sure, so her newest eggs (today's eggs) are in the incubator. I will re-candle them next week to see if they seem OK or not.
