6 days later with the Green Cheek egg layer

No more eggs. Koi Monkey has been charming. She hasn’t been goofing off in her previous nesting location and is very active and outgoing. She talks to me all the time and we banter back and forth with our birdie phrases. Sometimes she wants to hang out with me personally, and sometimes she hops on […]

Tommy Gargoyle – The weight struggles with my cat

When Tommy was a young man, his mother overdid it and let him eat all the time, and balloon to 21 lbs. That was me. I love this guy, and I didn’t know better. We got his measurements taken at the vet’s office and they told me he was honestly a 13.1 lb cat underneath. […]

Egg laying continues in all female flock – Phone consult with vet tech

By accounts, Koi Monkey is likely to lay an 8th or 9th egg by the weekend. It looks like she’s started plucking her feathers from her underbelly, but I haven’t seen those little feathers in her nesting bowl. Any time I put bedding in her nesting bowl, she takes it out. She’s starting to bulge […]

Latest on my little egg layer

I’m hoping to wrap this up, but we’ve got either egg #6 or egg #7. Someone keeps kicking eggs out of her grouping, and I put them back and she’ll take it immediately and tuck it under her. I went ahead and ordered her the nest from DummyEggs.com as well, and I’m thinking that it’s […]

I was wrong. We keep finding eggs.

She may be up to 6 by now. Koi keeps laying on the dummies, and Idris keeps messing with her. I’m going to buy her a nest since Idris keeps stealing the eggs.
