Well, will ya get a load of this. My Husband went to let the critters out of the henhouses this morning. He found an egg. It must have fallen out of the chicken's bum, right onto the roosting platform. I have a platform that is below their roosts so it makes it easier to clean up their overnight messes. And man, do they do a whole lotta pooping at night. But so easy to clean up, smiling.
THis egg is the egg of all times. It must have been quite soft as it landed on the pooping board and the bottom flattened out. Go figure. Anyways, we have been having the strangest eggs now and then.
Last week there was a tiny egg born that had no yolk.
Another time there was a tiny egg (these are all big brown chickens that lay big brown eggs) born. This little egg was speckled (looking kind of like a turkey egg). It had weight to it. It was not empty. BUT....at the end of it on the pointy end, there appeared to be a hole. Obviously the hole did not go right through, otherwise the egg would have been empty.
I was too afraid to crack that egg with that hole in it -- it gave me the willies, so I just dispensed of it. That is a secret what I did with it, smiling.
I am kind of worried to crack open this flattened egg too, it is giving me the willies as well, eeeeeeks!!!!!!
Lookie at this egg!!! AND.....have that most wonderful and great day, to love and have as your own, great health. Cindi
