With the morning sun shinning in the nest box, giving Sydney the glow of impending egg laying.
It didn't happen!
Viewers and chatters waited the day and then later the night, with many expecting at any minute the egg would come.. One of the running jokes was that Sydney would lay egg four the minute "they" the chatter left the room. Many chatters would leave only to return hours later to see that number four still hadn't arrived.
At 10:14pm , Mel brought in Sydney's first treat of the night
In this pose of Sydney, she was right in the middle of labor with her fourth egg.
With 2 loud plops we have 4.. WTG Sydney!
Egg 4 at 10:34pm
