In turn, the spotted doe spent most of her afternoon trying to sneak out to the yard to mess with the nest hole. Several times MoR or Lady Mo came and chased her away, before they finally filled the hole in.
I'm all for giving second chances, but if the spotted doe doesn't step it up next litter, she's going to have to go. It was her first litter, so I'll give her the benefit of the doubt, but if the other doe doesn't like her, and she isn't a good momma, there's no reason to keep her around. I'd just as soon put Boon's momma back in there and just have the three Dutch cross sisters as the entire female force of the colony.
Phil is great fun to watch. When he runs he kicks his feet out slightly to the sides, and with his leg feathers, it almost looks like he's dancing while wearing bell bottoms. He's a sweet rooster though, and is easy to catch and handle (though he's not happy about it). This makes him my favorite (but shhh - don't tell Sterling).
