When i opened there house this morning Becky took me by surprise she was digging away and she laid one egg,she did not cover it back up  at all,wonder why!!!made it easy for me,i had to quickly set up the incubator,Becky's first year of laying her first egg she broke while starting to cover up and then she gave up,i suppose she has alot to learn.

hi Jayne

you maybe disturbed her going in the shed, just keep an eye on her in case she has any more.

hopefully the egg you have is fertile best of luck. :)

If she could not dig the hole deep enough ie as deep as her legs can reach when the body is dipping into the hole, then she will not have completed nesting properly and may still have eggs to be laid.
