RE: Lady Chatsworth News


Oh no! 
It's still pretty early in the spring - she can and probably will start over

Well....that is EXACTLY what happened. Her nest (this being her first
year) was not in the safest place. When I went to check on the eggs last
night they were all GONE and her nest was destroyed. I cried. Dang it. I
know she will rebuild somewhere else...I just hope it's in a safer PLACE
this time. I was just crushed.
