Not So Egg-Citing News :o(

Candled Egg

Candled Egg

We had some egg-citing news to share with you all in our blog post about keeping them eggs warm where we told you that we had two sets of breeding pairs of greys with eggs (6 in total, 3 eggs in each nestbox).

Well I have some disappointing news to update you all with … you’ve probably guessed it already but it seems that none of the eggs were fertile, so looks like that busy Christmas we were expecting won’t be quite as busy as we thought after all :(.

So just to put you in the picture as to how we know the eggs aren’t fertile, we were watching both pairs on the cameras that we have in their nest boxes and noticed that one pair seemed to be leaving the box and their eggs for longer and longer periods, to the point where we had to say enough is enough.

Paula dashed outside when the greys were out of the box and she candled the eggs … they were clear … damn … so while she was there she candled the other set of eggs … they were clear too!!

Looks like it’s back to the drawing board!!
