We are delighted to announce that at 9:15AM today, after LM12 had brought in a brilliant rainbow trout for LF15 to feed herself and the chicks, it was noticed that we have a crack in the third egg, beneath the other egg shell which has been covering it and the cause of much confusion until now.

For a more detailed account, please check back later, as the egg shell covering the third egg is making it difficult to get great pictures.
