My first strange egg

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 


Fascinating (my husband, Mr. Squeamish, could barely even look at it).  I think my Black Australorp laid this.  She is having a difficult time laying eggs that are usable.  But at least she laid this in the nest box and not on the roost board.  There was a perfect little egg inside that I scrambled and fed to the girls.

Doesn't it?   I was fascinated by it.

Was the pokey end sharp or pliable?  I can see how chickens would hate laying these regularly, lol.

It was fairly soft and pliable.  I think laying this one would be easier than one of my Buffs that lays eggs with a lot of calcium bumps on them.  Ouchy.
