Wow, Rita, very surprised about the egg. I was under the impression Shadow was not mature enough at 4. Guess like kids nowdays, mature for their age. Sure hope Ma gives him him a crash course in Parenting 101 quickly.

I think that I saw Shadow bring in food for Mom last night. But I am not sure if he brought it in or not. It was late and I was tired.
She did eat well though. :yes:
I must confess, that nest doesn't look very hospitable. There doesn't seem to be much fluff. The egg was sitting on ice. :(
It may be that the egg is not viable. :dunno:
The weather really stinks there too! :yes: Sorry to sound so down, but I was hoping for a good year here.

Mrs BB had the 2nd egg this evening. Not positive of the time. She was looking quite puffed up and in labor around 5:27 pm.

Hi Maddy! Oh my gosh it's so good to see you posting at Big Bear again. Thank you so much for all of the wonderful posts today.

Mrs BB just rolled the two eggs and settled back down to incubate. Snowing pretty good at Big Bear right now.

Thank you Maddy and Ferenz for your posts today. It's good to see that a lot of the snow has melted.

6:38 pm Looks like Mrs BB is on duty for the night shift with the eggs.
