Every now and then she surprises me with an odd shaped egg!

    I have a pair of black & white polish crested chickens. He is very smart and well groomed but she always looks like she's having a bad hair day - think he needs additions to his harem! [​IMG]
    She lays very neat white eggs, maybe 3 a week on average. Yesterday I got the smallest cutest egg I've ever seen! A perfect miniature! The size of a quail's egg! They are usually slightly smaller than the run of the mill egg but this is just darling!
    (Think she was disturbed mid-egg!)[​IMG]

    We had a thunder storm a while back and she layed a longer narrower egg!
    OOOOhhhh matron![​IMG]

    See my page for new photos of Polish Crested Chickens and eggs!

    I've had a few eggs like that, looked like little robin eggs [​IMG] I agree, catalog all her strange-shaped eggs! It would make an awesome album.

    My Polish lays the best eggs. I only eat hers and sell the rest because I have yet to find anything weird floating around in any of them. The others usually leave me the meat spots and blood spots. [​IMG]
