another surprise , it wasn't Fern or the other two whom I thought were older. It was one of the black hens , since I have a hard time telling them apart , I'm not sure which black hen by name laid the golden egg. I'm still watching to see if any of the others are using the nesting box.
The guineas have started to nest I think , I haven't found anymore eggs on the ground. I'm going to try to find their nest , but I will leave their eggs. We would love to have baby keets , if nature takes that course. They have earned their keep by eating ticks and potato beetles.
