    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] A couple of months ago we had an eggsplosion under a broody hen > I dont know which was worse , the smell of it or the fact that mama hen insisted on slurping up the grayish green sludge.... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    we estimated the eggs age upon explosion was about 40 days... ooopppsss
