Broody Virginia

Carmen very unusually started looking broody last week so we set up an ark and broody box with some fake eggs for her. She seemed keen for all of about a day but quickly got bored. We let her out but left the door to the ark open to see if we had any more takers. Virginia quickly obliged, but, since we hadn’t been collecting Muscovy eggs in anticipation, thought we’d have another go with some goose eggs. She seemed a bit put off for a couple of hours but then duly made them her own. Lucy seems to know somehow that this isn’t quite right and is spending a bit of time complaining about it all but she’s tiring if that. Virginia started sitting properly on Saturday, so hopefully in 28 days we may have some goslings!
