    My EE lays eggs with calcium deposits frequently. This morning I found this:
    Is that a picture of a chicken on the egg?!! What does it mean???

    P.S. I swear I did nothing to doctor the egg, it was just like that!

    You should blow it out and keep it! That is too cool!

    Oh, BTW, when I saw it I thought it was a prophecy of the way the earth would look after global warming was finished... lots more water and just a few islands here and there.

    now if you can just get her to lay one with the Virgin Mary on it, sell it on ebay, you will be able to afford a sportsman incubator, a custom new coop, four new runs and a year's supply of feed! [​IMG]
