Rosanna's jumbo egg turned out to be a double yolker just as I thought it would. I scrambled it along with 10 others, some salt and pepper and a dash of curry (thanks for the suggestion Ruth!) I served the eggs with some bacon and toast and sent the guys off with fully bellies this morning. Then I went back to bed and crashed till 10.
We got some good rain last night as a cold front moved through. The temperature is much cooler today and once again I have to wear a jacket when I go outside. Bummer.
I was sitting in the office typing up yesterday's blog entry when the ducks began taking their mid-day bath. They are moulting right now and they get pretty vigorous with their splashing. I think it's an attempt to knock off the baby feathers. I think it must make a bird itchy to moult. Lots of diving and splashing going on here!
They flap their wings against the water just the way the chickens flap their wings against the dirt when they dust bathe. Here you can see some more diving action too.
