    I've only had chickens for about five years now and have NEVER seen anything like this before!

    Actually we now are getting *about* one or two eggs a WEEK from 10 hens ... some times not even that. At least our ducks are still giving us some eggs! I don't want to buy store bought chicken eggs!!

    Um, what do mean by *blowing* the egg??? [​IMG]
