Mom and Dad came out and we finished the water project. All is left to do is to hook up the hoses and it is ready to go. But since we had three inches of rain the last week it may be a little while before we need to use it.
So, today I was walking down the driveway to get the mail and I spotted a small intact blue egg lying on the driveway. I immediately thought ti was from the nest that I had found when weeding the cobalt garden and was afraid that one of the dogs had stolen it from the nest. We used to have chickens and sometimes the dogs would help me pick eggs. Cody would carry hers off intact. I think that she thought it was a tennis ball. I would sometimes find her eggs where she left them. Sadie on the other hand has no time for tennis balls so she would carry hers off and break it open and eat it.
I went to check the nest and the mom was gone and there were two eggs that had hatched and two little brown fuzzy birds in the nest. I decided to put the egg that I had found back in the nest. I could not tell for sure how many eggs were left there and after I put the egg in there is seems that it might not be the right nest as the eggs may be a different color. I guess we will have to see what happens.
