    Maya and 33 have been incubating their eggs for 29 days now and we should see the first egg hatch next week!

    I'm not staying.  Off to the garden to finish off some tasks before the rain moves north.  SYL

  • Maya and 33 had a miserable day with the rain Currently Maya is incubating and she is soaked
  • I have been looking in on/off today when working and always the same scene - rain!!

    A horrible day and hopefully soon 33 will bring her a nice big fish for dinner for she so deserves it.

  • 19:32  FISH

    33 arrives with a fish and Maya is up quick ready to take it

    she gets hold of it and takes off

    33 now takes up incubating.  Bit fiddly getting one egg under him

    But he manages and soon settles down
