    My jersey giant was having a, uh, vent issue today. I saw her poop (lucky me) but her vent didn't return to normal, instead it just stayed prominent and flexing- like it does when she has to poop. This went on for some time and I figured I'd leave her alone to do her business. Well, when I gathered eggs tonite I saw that someone had laid a bullet shaped egg! It's the same color brown as my giants' eggs. Could it have been the cause of her problem?[​IMG]

    Get 'em like that often enough that I don't think much of it. I don't know as I'd try to hatch one that shape though.
