    Hi Everyone:
    I am so :hoppingblue: to report one beautiful blue egg was laid today :dancing: . My only concern is our weather for the next couple days. They are calling for snow flakes and scattered frost tomorrow night and Monday morning. I am hoping they are wrong for I fear those temps will jeopardize any eggs. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    Connie, she should be okay with the temps. She will probably sit all night and into the morning hours if no one bothers her. The male might even bring her breakfast.

    Hi David:
    I didn’t know she would do that before incubation started, but it definitely relieves my mind.
    Thanks,
    Connie

    Connie, Congratulations on your first egg!!! Hopefully all the bad weather is bypassing you. They were predicting a lot of snow for us last night, but it missed us. Did you get a second egg today?

    Hi Judy:
    I did have the second egg yesterday but I did not open the box, it was so chilly and windy. I just assumed that when I saw egg #3 mid morning today. I do believe she has started incubating them as I see her in the box with her beak or whole head protruding from the hole. I was hoping there would be a clutch of 5 or 6 but I am thrilled to have what I have. :woohoo:
    We avoided the snow, but at 6:00 AM today there was frost on most surfaces and
    27 degrees🙁. I have no way of knowing if the two eggs will make it or not but in a few weeks I will know for sure.
    Keep good thoughts for a new male :bluebird: and give those nasty :TwoHosp: a run for their lives.
