Does it get any fresher?

    I opened the duck house door about 10 mins ago. Cadbury ran out and Ally stayed in the door. So I bent down to say morning and pet her. And she let me. I didn't see an egg and it seemed like maybe she was doing her little egg dance.
    Thunk, and then she walked out.
    So basically, she about laid an egg in my hand LOL

    That sucker was hot.
    And had a nasty smelling poop with it too!

    I read their body temperature is 104F. Nice and warm!

    I've picked up a few very, very fresh eggs. Happily, none were poopy. They smell very fresh, like meringue.

    Nope, no fresher than that!

    She gave you a special delivery this morning.

I thought it was weird for them to smell like that but it would seem to be typical when freshly laid. Cool![​IMG]

    I love picking up the 2 warm eggs in the morning too! I never noticed any smell with their eggs though. Your girls have an aromic quality. I wish the other stuff that they leave behind had no smell or was lysol fresh!![​IMG]
